Bulgaria makes 112 accessible to citizens with hearing, speech disabilities

The Bulgarian parliament adopted a decision requiring the 112 emergency phone number centres to provide the necessary conditions for access to citizens with impaired hearing and speaking abilities.

Under the act the interior minister should guarantee the access of people with hearing and speech disabilities to the 112 emergency phone number within a one-year deadline.

The adopted amendments bring the Bulgarian legislation in line with the European one.
