Sapeurs-Pompiers de Genève

The 118 Project.

Swiss pompiers got fed up with so many people confusing their number (118) with the number for information (18something). They’ve been receiving about 20 calls a day for information instead of for fires. So they recorded a rap song and shot a music video to remind the Swiss that 118 is for fires and emergencies only.

I’ve watched the video way too many times already… Le un un huit !

    118 numbers are direct enquiries here in the UK. I can see how it’s confusing though for the Swiss 😉
