Prime Minister Imran Khan on Thursday inaugurated the unified emergency helpline 911 to facilitate the common people.
Addressing the inaugural ceremony in Islamabad, he said the emergency helpline is a great project, which needs support of all the federating units of the country.
Imran Khan said bringing facilitation to the lives of common people is a responsibility of the state and making Pakistan a welfare state is his vision.
He said his government launched health cards, Ehsas Programme, Kamyab Jawan Programme, and other public welfare initiatives to facilitate the people of Pakistan.
It is pertinent to mention that now a caller will only have to dial 911 and it will be routed to the concerned emergency response department.
At present, several emergency services with different dialing numbers are operating in Islamabad and the unified 911 service will provide the callers an integrated platform to get in touch with the relevant emergency response service for relief.
