What do you do when you are the first person to arrive at the scene of an accident? Do you know who to contact?
EMR24 in Klerksdorp launched a pilot project designating a number specifically for the reporting of motor vehicle accidents in the KOSH area.
You can now whatsapp 072 127 2876 and leave a text message or voice note.
If you are the first to report the accident, the dispatcher will contact you for further information. The dispatcher will then contact the relevant authorities to attend to the scene.
This platform only applies to car accidents that you witnessed. The emergency number 061 600 33 44 is still the first option in an emergency.
