    Emergency Phone

    We are looking for a phone with NO keypad just programable quick dial buttons,

    it is to go on pool side, so they can only call say Recepeption and 999, would be nice to have a couple of other buttons too..

    has anyone got any of these / know if they exist.

    Many thanks Ben

    Radios would be quicker and would'nt need signal ect? Yes they'd be more expensive but an emergancy on poolside would be worth it.

    I haven't seen them in the UK as I know we tend to use radio systems to communicate around pool areas
    I've seen them whilst on holiday in the states though; something like this ...
    Swimming pool phones

    Might be worth ringing your local swimming pool to see there set ups ?
    I picked up some cheap Binatone's with a charging stand and they work great, and you can even get earphones for some models with the push to talk button that clips to your shirt

    When I was in Australia, these Smart Dialler were advertised on the TV. I'm sure these is something similar in the UK.
    A quick google came up with Emergency Phones - see the Viking E-1600

    What about something like a lone-worker device with programmable buttons?;

    Beat me to it Shielder. These phones are used all over for such purposes, even fire stations have them!
