The Fire and Rescue Services Department will cease using the 994 emergency number from April 1 onwards.

This is in line with the Government’s aim of using 999 as a single emergency number.

The 999 number enables emergency assistance and humanitarian from the police, Fire and Rescue Services Department, hospitals and Civil Defence Department.

With that, the public is advised to not call 994 anymore but contact 999 if they are in any genuine emergency.
