Slovenians called 112 almost half a million times last year


Deputy director Branko Dervodel said it had been a relatively quiet year, especially compared to 2014, when the administration recorded 100,000 calls more, mostly due to the February 2014 ice storm.

Head of the emergency response centre Boštjan Tavčar echoed Dervodels statement about the relatively quiet year as regards major disasters.

According to him, most of the people who call 112 need emergency medical help, at which point their calls are redirected to medical centres - the figure stopped at 77,000 last year.

The response centre meanwhile called in fire-fighters in nearly 20,000 cases, mountain rescuers in 600 cases and rescue dog teams in 130 cases.
