Panchkula,: The citizens of Haryana will now be able to get police assistance 24 hours a day. The police will neither be able to push the needy people for help nor will they be able to make any excuse. Haryana government has started a combined number 112 for emergency services related to police, fire and ambulance service in the state. Chief Minister Shri Manohar Lal Khattar started this number from Panchkula. 601 Emergency Response Vehicle (ERV) vehicles will be dispatched for different districts.
The new system would eliminate the need for people to remember multiple numbers. ERSS is an amalgamation of Police (100), Fire (101) and Ambulance (108) helpline numbers to provide emergency services through a single number. This project has been implemented on the instructions of the Union Home Ministry.
Chief Secretary Shri Vijai Vardhan, Additional Chief Secretary (Home) Shri Rajiv Arora, Additional Director General of Police (ADGP) IT Shri A S Chawla and senior officers of the police department were also present on this occasion.
The system shall be operated by nearly 5,000 trained personnel, while 630 brand new SUVs are equipped with 23 in-fleet items, including first-aid-boxes, stretcher, crime extrication kit, to take required action on the spot.
Home Minister Shri Anil Vij said that under the project, a state-of-the-art State Emergency Response Center has been set up in Panchkula, which has been digitally linked to the Emergency Response Vehicles along with the Police Control Room at the district level.
This project is being considered very important for the services of Haryana Police. The launch of the project will help the police to help people more quickly and effectively in times of emergency. Citizens can get emergency help by dialing the number 112 in case of any crisis. The emergency number is being started under the Emergency Response and Support System (ERSS).
