Emergency numbers

Situations can go bad in a split second. Ensuring you have a plan in place and the correct numbers at hand for those situations could be the difference.

When anyone calls 10111 – or any other emergency service we often find that the operator gets the street name address incorrect:

  1. Learn to spell your street name using the following – this way SAP vans/vehicles as well as ambulances and fire trucks will be given a proper spelling of the street.
  2. Make very sure that your home is CLEARLY MAKRED  - the numbers are all too often VERY difficult to see – which increases the response time.
