112 – The Phone Number that Saves Lives http://firesafeeurope.eu/112-eena-interview/ http://firesafeeurope.eu/112-eena-interview/#respond Wed, 21 Dec 2016 14:05:24 +0000 http://firesafeeurope.eu/?p=15945 Less than half of EU-citizens know that 112 can be dialled in case of emergency anywhere in Europe. Emergency calls are not located accurately enough. Public authorities are not able to efficiently informĀ the citizens about ongoing fires or upcoming threats. Faced with theses alarming facts, theĀ European Emergency Number Association (EENA) has developed solution such as theĀ Advanced Mobile Location (AML) system which has already saved many lives. We interviewed Benoit Vivier to know more about the 112 number and EENA's work.
