Help is on the way of Nigerians to
get accessfrom any Response Agency
such as the Police, Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC), Nigeria Security and
Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC), Fire and Ambulance Services as the Nigerian
Communications omission (NCC) is set to launch Emergency Communications Centres
across the country.





When launched, Nigerians would be
able to dial a a toll free number 112 from any network and get attention.





In an email message, the telecom
agency said the plan is in line with global practices and part of its mandate
to   Promote and enhance public safety through the use of a particular number
which shall be designated as the Universal Safety and Emergency Assistance
Number for telephone services generally.





The Centres, according to NCC will
be launched in various states of the federation and the Federal Capital
Territory (FCT), disclosing that the Federal Executive Council (FEC), approved
the establishment of the National Emergency Communications Agency (NECA) to set
up an Emergency Communications System for Nigeria.





Members were drawn from the Ministry
of Communication, NCC, Telecom Network Operators, Security Agencies, National
Emergency Management Agency (NEMA), and other relevant agencies for the
adoption of a three-digit emergency number, 112.





In the absence of an Act for NECA,
the FEC approved that NCC should push for the establishment of one model
Emergency Communications Centre in each of the states in the federation and the
FCT.





Each state was requested to allocate
a suitable piece of land, as its counterpart contribution for the establishment
of the Emergency Communications Centre in the state, while NCC was to build,
equip and operate the Centres for some years before handing over to the states.
NCC, has taken practical steps ever since to ensure that the Centres are
established in various parts of the country. These Centres are specially
designed to answer all 112 emergency calls and to direct each call to the
appropriate Response Agency closest to the caller, thereby serving as a
communication link between Public Response Agencies and members of the public.





The 112 number is a Toll-free line
and can be called from any network. This three-digit number will help to
provide timely information to relevant agencies for the prevention of crime,
rescue distressed persons, mitigate and possibly prevent disasters.





Already, states such as Anambra,
Akwa-Ibom, Benue, Edo, Enugu, FCT, Imo, Kaduna, Kano, Katsina, Ondo, Ogun, Oyo
and Plateau have operational Emergency Communications Centres are.
