    Emergency Communications Centres (ECC)


    The Emergency Communications Centres (ECC) Project is intended to bridge the communication gap between the distressed and emergency response agencies in the country.

    The Nigerian Communications Commission has undertaken the task of facilitating the building and equipping Emergency Communications Centres in all 36 states of the federation and the Federal Capital Territory, Abuja.

    All telecom operators will be mandated to route emergency calls through the dedicated three-digit toll free number, 112, from each state to the emergency centre within that state.

    The operators, who are resident in the ECC will then process the distress call and contact the relevant Emergency Response Agency (e.g. Fire Service, Police, FRSC, Ambulance, etc.) whose primary duty is to handle the case.

    Numerous centres have been built and provided with equipment across the nation in all six geopolitical zones.
