The Cross River State Government has activated 112 toll-free line to help in emergency responses in the State.
The activation is contained in a memo signed by the Director General of the Cross River arm of the State Emergency Management Agency (CR-SEMA), Chief Mrs. Angela Ogeyi in case of unforeseen flood and other emergencies that need urgent attention; enjoining members of the public to call for quick intervention.
It reads: “This is to inform members of the public that the Cross River State Government, through the Emergency Management Agency, has activated an emergency response system ahead of the impending flood and other emergencies.
“The system allows members of the public to call 112, a toll-free line, in case of flood and other emergencies in any part of the State which includes flooding, fire disaster, road accident, water misshape, plane crash, gas or bomb explosion; collapsed/risky building, fallen tree among others.”
The government charges members of the public to be the first to love and be the first to care.
