LAHORE: The Punjab Emergency Service/Rescue 1122 has launched the “Rescue Lost Helpline-1192” to reunite the lost emergency victims of accidents, emergency and disaster with their families.

Rescue 1122 deals with around 3000 accidents and emergencies on a daily basis all over Punjab in which it often receives unattended unconscious or dead victims of accidents, emergencies and disasters. Therefore, a dire need was felt to establish a mechanism for reuniting the unattended victims with their families, for which, Rescue Lost Helpline 1192 has been launched. Information or assistance might be got from the helpline in case someone gets lost due to any accident, emergency or disaster.

Punjab Emergency Service, Dr Rizwan Naseer said this while launching the helpline at Rescue Headquarters here on Thursday. The heads of all wings at Rescue Headquarters and Emergency Services Academy attend the ceremony.

While talking to the media, the DG said Rescue 1122 Emergency Service had become a leading emergency service in Pakistan, having infrastructure across Punjab as well as in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, Gilgit-Baltistan and Azad Kashmir which could be effectively utilised to reunite family members with each other.

He added 1192 number was allocated for Rescue Lost Helpline by Pakistan Telecommunication Authority. There would be initially three lines for 24/7 services. The families of lost victims could seek help to locate their lost family members on the helpline. A software application has been developed to have complete information regarding lost victims and searching data from other sources, the DG said.
