Red Cross launches natural disaster helpline

in News · 07-06-2018 13:53:00 · 0 Comments

The Portuguese Red Cross has launched a new helpline to be closer to populations in the event of a natural disaster.

The phoneline 1415 is operational 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. It aims to complement response and rescue operations in the event of a catastrophe, such as a large wildfire, by helping get quicker aid to those affected.
However, the Red Cross stressed it does not replace the 112 international emergency number.
