POWER OF HELP – Rescue Service
109 – is a crucial number you would dial to seek for emergency help.
On the other end of the line – there is an Almaty Emergency Service. One call and the help is rushing to one in distress.
They are always willing to deal with any extreme conditions, able to evacuate you from a building on fire; free you from a crushed car; take you off the skyscraper or pull you out of the blockage. They are near you in the mountains, in the streets and even under the water
While it is quiet and peaceful people can be sure they are protected. Rescuers will ensure aid is delivered to those in need, e.g. open a locked house, if the key is lost, get access to impaired people, if they need assistance or even take the ring from the swollen finger.
Such little deeds matter a lot. And while the Emergency Service is in charge – the city can sleep peacefully.
