I Lert U - Thai police emergency app

Post by Big Boy » Mon May 07, 2018 3:52 pm

I'm putting this here because its an app, but if any of my moderator colleagues feel it is better placed elsewhere, then feel free to move it.

The Royal Thai Police have launched an app that can be used in emergency situations.

It has an English interface also:

It looks to answer a couple of mysteries for me that could make it invaluable, and I will be downloading it to give it a go i.e.

- I've never known what phone number to call for an ambulance.

- If I were on the road, and needed help, I wouldn't have a clue how to relay my location. This seems to have an Uber type tracking system.

Definitely looks worthy of further investigation.

Seems like it might be a good idea, but the sign for the ambulance option looks to me as if it may be a link to Bangkok Hospital, in which case I would certainly not want to use if for myself. I'd much rather be picked up and taken to Hua-Hin hospital where doctors are more concerned about your health than they are about relieving you of your life's savings.

I refuse to register to be able to read all of this, but it is just typical of the logic here. Endless phone numbers for emergencies, and now another one. It would be a crying shame if they were able to get their shite together and have just the one national number. You can be sure that the new police app is providing some pocket money for someone!

Emergency? Just dial 'M' for mayhem

https://www.bangkokpost.com/opinion/opi ... for-mayhem

Do you know what emergency number to call in case of fire? It's 199. By the way, that number is good if you have unwelcome animals intruding into your house too.

How about a health emergency?
Well, you can choose between 1669 for the National Institute of Emergency Medicine, 1646 for the BMA's Erawan Emergency Centre or 1554 for Vachira Hospital's medical ambulance team.

If it's a disaster, like a bridge falling down or flash flood heading your way, keep in your memory that the number to call is 192. If it's something less cataclysmic, like a road accident, it is 1146. Don't forget that when it comes to a car or motorcycle theft, the hotline is 1192. For illegal drugs, it's 1165 but general complaints about foods and drugs go to 1556. If a taxi refused a trip, call 1584.

These do not include 1195 for the crime suppression police, 1784 for public disasters, 1146 for road safety services belonging to the rural road department, 1356 for general transport safety and 1300 to report a missing person.

That is not all. Each and every government ministry and agency also maintains their own hotline numbers. There is the 1111 hotline for public services, 1567 for public services as well but probably only those pertaining to the Interior Ministry, 1166 for consumer protection, 1355 for the Administrative Court and 1765 for the Ministry of Culture.

Why do we need so many hotlines and "emergency'' numbers? Does it help people in urgent need this way? Who can possibly remember which specific number to use for which specific occasion?

In total, we have close to a hundred of these so-called hotlines. Some belong to the government, others operated by private entities such as the JS100 radio (whose numbers are 1808 and 1137 in case you need them.)
