The National Ambulance Service has acquired new emergency numbers due to network challenges it has been having with its toll free number 193.
Speaking to Citi News, the Public Relations Officer of the Service, Simons Yusif Kewura said the new numbers were acquired as part of measures to improve the quality of service.
Citi News reported on the difficulties some Ghanaians were facing in reaching the Ambulance Service during emergencies.
