Emergency numbersBack


There have been a number of complaints of emergency calls not being answered.   Please note that you should only dial 1011 from a landline.   If you are using a mobile phone, you should dial the emergency number 112.    If you dial 10111 from your mobile phone, there is a good chance that the call will not be connected to emergency services.  From your side it will sound as though the phone is ringing and being left unanswered.   This is not the case in all areas, but in our area, it does happen.  So please note the following emergency numbers (add these to your cell phone directory):
