Here is a ravishing news for Delhiites, that now onwards you will have your own emergency telephone number, that is, “112” just like “911”. Well, 911 has been designated as the “Universal Emergency Number” for citizens throughout the United States to request emergency assistance. It is intended as a nationwide telephone number and gives the public fast and easy access to a Public Safety Answering Point (PSAP).

So, here is the complete news regarding emergency number “112” –

Delhi Police launched the single emergency helpline number “112” for immediate assistance. This Emergency Response Support System was launched by Minister of State for Home Affairs G Kishan Reddy. New number replaced the earlier functioning three helpline numbers – 100, 101 and 102 for the sake of convenience. With the implementation of new Emergency Response Support System, the police response time is reduced tremendously.

Moreover, in this new system, the call simultaneously passes to the PCR as well as to atleast five people nearby through a mobile app. The main call cantre has been set up in Shalimar Bagh in New Delhi, which is operating under the control of DCP. Speaking on the occasion, Delhi Police Commissioner Amulya Patnaik said the project will expand the grievance redressal mechanism of police and other civic agencies.

People of Delhi can avail the facility of three emergency services – Police, Fire Services and Ambulance by dialing a single number. On the top of that, even if somebody dials 100/101/102, the call will automatically connect to 112.
