Emergency numbers temporarily unavailable in Brussels
Friday, 05 April 2019
The telephone numbers of emergency 100, 112 (rescue) and 101 (police) were, as of Friday afternoon, unreachable for many Belgian citizens. The problem was caused by a widespread disturbance of the fixed network of the telecom operator Proximus, confirms the spokesperson for the company.
Shortly before 16:00 Friday, the company reported via its Facebook page of a “technical problem” making its call centres “difficult to access”.
Emergency services announced they were looking into the possibility of bringing other numbers into service. If the life of a person is in danger, you can contact the emergency centres by sms via the 8112 (crisis centre).
Proximus a des problèmes avec son réseau téléphonique fixe. En conséquence, les services d’urgence, 100,101 et 112 ne sont temporairement disponibles que via un poste téléphonique fixe Proximus Nous travaillons à une solution
