Emergency call data released


FOR the seven months until the end of July, the emergency call coordination centre covering the Murcia region received a total of more than 7,800 calls related to gender violence.

In total, calls to the 112 emergency number recorded a 9.75 per cent increase compared to the same period as last year, not least in part due to the winter snows and strong winds in the first few months of 2017.

Commenting on the calls received for gender violence, the director general of security and emergency services, José Ramón Carrasco said that the figure remains similar to that of previous years.

Overall, 545,877 calls were made to the 112 service covering Murcia from January to July (inclusive) with 58 per cent relating to health emergencies.
