Bali may have a "Dial 911" emergency response center if current plans being promoted by the Foundation for Public Safety (YLKMI) are successful.
Mr. Eddy S. Tjokronegoro, the Executive Director of the YLKMI, told the Indonesian language BISNIS Indonesia that has lined up investors prepared to provide initial funding of US$ 4 million for the project if Bali's Governor provides official endorsement for the project.
The initial funding will reportedly be used for communication equipment and personnel training. According to the press report, a total of US$ 70 million will be needed to fund the first three years of full operation for the proposed Emergency Response Center.
A Word of Caution
balidiscovery.com will confirm when and if the 911 service is officially up and running.
Dialing "911" before then will result in the caller getting only a dial tone.
