Do you know what the 112 number is used for? What about 111
With 80 years of age, the emergency services are an incredible invention that have saved billions of lives all over the world. Whilst responders and operators do a fantastic job already, accessibility and education on the user side is sub-par. People often confuse non-emergency numbers such as 111 and 101 (medical and police respectively), and people often default call 999 (or their respective) as they no know other number, or simply can’t remember.
