PM Imran Khan Launches Integrated National Emergency Helpline 911

Prime Minister Imran Khan on Thursday launched the 911 helpline to provide all emergency relief services through a single platform across the country. He said it is a major step to help Pakistan move towards a Medina-style welfare state.

“Now, every citizen in any part of the country will get the answer of the state (in any emergency). This is a significant step towards the statement of our mission to make Pakistan an Islamic welfare state,” the Prime Minister said. He said this while addressing the inauguration ceremony of the helpline.

The Integrated Pakistan Emergency Helpline (PEHEL) will provide 911 emergency services such as fire brigade, police, health assistance, disaster recovery and motorway police. All a person needs to do is dial 911 and the call center will send the call to the relevant government agency.

The Prime Minister said that the government, like any welfare state, strives to make the lives of the people easier, the citizens should have confidence in the state’s response in case of any threat to life and property.
