PM launches Helpline 911 for integrated emergency relief services
ISLAMABAD – Prime Minister Imran Khan Thursday launched Helpline 911 to provide all emergency relief services through a single platform, which, he believed, was a major step forward to developing Pakistan on the pattern of Madina welfare state. “Now, every citizen in any part of the country will get the state’s response (in case of any emergency). This is a major move forward towards our mission statement of making Pakistan an Islamic welfare state,” the prime minister said addressing the launching ceremony of the helpline. The integrated Pakistan Emergency Helpline (PEHEL) – 911 will provide emergency services like fire brigade, police, health assistance, disaster recovery and motorway police etc. A needy person will have to dial just 911 and the call center will forward the call to the relevant government agency.
