Room and go minister late April to debate reached 112 in border areas




The parliament and minister responsible Henk Kamp go late April in debate on a report that appears on the accessibility of 112 in border areas. Many people say there have no range to dial 112 in an emergency.

The report, published in April, the Ministry of Economic Affairs to give solutions to the problem of the limited accessibility of the emergency in some areas, writes RTV Oost. It would be 50,000 to 60,000 people who have no range in the vicinity of their home. For calling 112 does not matter you are a customer which provider: providers make every call to 112 by.

Vodafone said this week to have a solution. By antennas in border areas to allow manual adjustment to include power and angle of the placement, the range should be better. Also, Vodafone sets additional antennas in the form of small cells, small zendmastjes with a range of up to 500 meters.

The range of 112 in border areas last year became a political issue when singer Marga Bult the issue brought to the attention, after her mother in a fire could not reach the emergency number. Then followed complaints from many more people from the border region.
