112 awareness & accessibility raised during European Parliament debate

EU - 112 awareness & accessibility raised by MEP during debate on "Situation of fundamental rights in the European Union in 2015"


On 12 December 2016, a European Parliament debate on the Situation of fundamental rights in the European Union in 2015 took place in Strasbourg, France. Members of the European Parliament (MEPs) debated on different important topics related to citizens' fundamental rights.

During the debate, the common European emergency number 112 and accessibility to emergency services were raised as important issues. More specifically, MEP Mrs. Sylvia-Yvonne Kaufmann highlighted the value of 112 awareness among Europeans, as well as the need to improve accessibility to 112 for people with disabilities.

To quote Mrs. Kaufmann "in an emergency every second counts!" so we would like to thank her for raising these important issues!

Mrs. Kaufmann is part of EENA's MEPs 112 Champions Network, a group of MEPs committed to advancing 112 for the benefit of European citizens and visitors!
