Has Commissioner Neelie Kroes Fulfilled Her Obligations to Save the Lives of Our Citizens?

Has Commissioner Neelie Kroes fulfilled her obligations to save the lives of our citizens? 112 is the number everyone in the European Union can dial to reach the emergency services, but Neelie Kroes could have done much better to serve citizens... Instead she decided to please the car and mobile phone companies... This is a message for the new Commissioner from 96% of EU citizens who want a pan-EU emergency number (2011 eurobarometer): it's time for a change! 2007 112 In 2007, 112 was supported by Neelie Kroes could have improved this immediately by forcing telecom operators to give accurate caller location info... 530 MEPS estimated 320 million the record number of EP signatures ever! emergency calls made each year in the EU but she did not! Not being able to precisely locate citizens calling emergency services costs € every year !! Source : Source: EENA "112 awareness slides as Neelie does nothing" Only 27% of Europeans are aware of the 112 emergency number existence 13% 17% In general, awareness has only increased by 1% every year since 2007. In Lithuania and Estonia, awareness has even dropped by 10% in the last 5 years. 5% 7% Source : Eurobarometers 2008, 2009, 2010, 2011 & 2013 Does the EU Commission listen to the industry or to the EU citizens and their representatives? 1.7% 98.3% for car emergency calls for all other emergency calls €8 million €4.4 million Neelie Kroes has helped the car industry to develop eCall, an automatic emergency call system from vehicles. The European Commission invested €8m on eCall but only half of that on 112 in general. Investment Investment 112 in partnership with #savel12 SoS)

Requested by the NGO EENA, in order to highlight the fact the EU commissioner did very little about the emergency number.
