Mossel Bay Emergencies: Do you know who to phone?

MOSSEL BAY NEWS - The number to phone at the Mossel Bay Municipality in the case of non service delivery emergencies is 044 691 3722. In a statement issued by the Municipality, the public is urged to use this number instead of the normal switchboard number to assist the Municipality in getting to emergencies with the minimum delay.

This number for the Municipality's Fire and Rescue Services is listed in the Mossel Bay telephone directory for the reporting of emergencies such as road accidents, fires, rescues and lifesaving and even to remove snakes from houses. Calls to this number are routed to the Emergency Control Centre in George, from where they are relayed to the nearest fire station. The caller must try to give the correct address or a road crossing or a landmark, if possible, to ensure that the Fire and Rescue Services can reach the scene as soon as possible. It is also important that injuries are reported when vehicle accidents are reported. The central switchboard number of 044 606 5000 can be phoned in connection with all other service delivery issues.

This number is routed to the Eden District call centre after hours and can therefore also be called 24 hours a day.
This is the number to call when, typically, the electricity is on the blink, the tap is running dry or refuse is not collected.
