Europe’s emergency number 112 gets cold-shoulder

112, the ‘magic number’ that is meant to bring Europeans ‘emergency response’ in all kinds of situations is just taking far too long to respond.

As a result, less and less people are even bothering to use it.

Portugal is one of the five country’s where ‘abandonment’ of 112 is at its highest.

Says an EU study, worse results have been received from Bulgaria, Italy, Poland and the Czech Republic.
