Bangladesh Fire Service and Civil Defence will use new number ‘02223355555’ instead of old one ‘9555555’ for central control room in Dhaka from April 11. 

At least 10 people can call the 11-digit number easily from any land phone and mobile phone at a time to ask for help of the force, said a press release on Sunday.

About the change, Director General of Bangladesh Fire Service and Civil Defence Brigadier General Md Sazzad Hussain said, “Fire services are being modernised under the initiative of the government.  In continuation of the process, the initiative was taken to ensure more facilities for telephone users.”
