During this season of festive cheer, it is important to know where to turn if emergency help is required. There is a new number for use within the Cape Town Municipality Area which will connect you to all emergency services.
From a landline: Dial 107
From a cellphone: Dial 021 480 7700
- To make sure you have details and information about the emergency at hand
- The exact location in which you are situated, including any landmarks
- Caller detail – including name and number
- Detail of injuries
Do not hang up until you are asked to do so!
