For Boatpeople in Distress at Sea and in Cases of Pushback
THIS NUMBER IS NOT A RESCUE NUMBER!
But an ALARM NUMBER to support rescue operations!
We ourselves cannot rescue anyone, we do not have boats or helicopters.
What to do if you are in distress at sea and pushbacks:
1. First call the coast guards and tell them about your situation of distress.
2. Then call the Alarm Phone. We will make sure that your distress call is noted and acted upon.
3. If you are not promptly rescued by the coast guards, call the Alarm Phone again. We will inform the public media and politicians to put pressure on the rescue services.
