Slovak Telecom launches emergency line

SLOVAK TELECOM has launched operation of a new universal emergency line 112.

As of July 1 this year people can ring 112 in case of emergency without having to dial a specific number for police, fire, or ambulance services. The 112 number is used in many countries across Europe.

The operators, including some who also speak foreign languages, will make sure appropriate help arrives depending on the type of emergency.

For the time being, however, Slovaks will still be able to ring specific help lines for the individual services. The current emergency numbers - 150 (fire), 155 (ambulance), and 158 (police) - will continue to function until 2007.
