Phone numbers everyone should know
The majority of people are confident that they will not get into trouble. They don't know how to behave confronting with difficulties. We are told about the main emergency numbers in schools, but do we remember all of them? Today we will tell you where to call in case of problems. Remember the phone numbers, and we hope you don't need them.
101 - Ministry of Emergency Situations
The main task when calling the Emergencies Ministry is to tell what happened and give the address. It is advisable to remain calm, this will allow the dispatcher to better understand you and agree.
Rescuers will be sent only in case of a threat to life and health of people. You shouldn't call the Emergencies Ministry if your door just slammed shut. For such cases, there is a paid door opening service.
When you call the Emergencies Ministry in the event of a fire, clarify what exactly is on fire. It can be a 16-storey building or a trash can near it. The dispatcher must know how much equipment to send, so it is worth warning about the scale of the disaster. In a matter of seconds, you need to say the address, but if you don't know it, then take a look around, tell us about the landmarks. The service immediately leaves for the disaster site. The firefighters still need to go down to the garage, put on combat clothes, get into the car, leave - they have a minute for that. Therefore, they will come to you as soon as possible!
