"SOS Alarm aprilskämtade that they had changed the numbers on social media. A joke that many thought was fun, but also aroused the anger of many followers."
"SOS Alarm wanted to make a joke to it on the first of april, and la therefore out a post on Instagram where they announced that they changed the number from 112 to 211. "
"the Reason for the change would be that the number was easier to hit for left-handers. "
"Many followers on Instagram thought that the joke was very funny, and responded with both laughter and thumbs up. But others have acted differently and questioned whether it is appropriate to joke that they changed the numbers."
"Wanted to draw the attention of prank calls"
"SOS Alarm explains the April fool's that they wanted to pay attention to the bus - and false calls."
" I understand that you may react when we joke about such an important function in the society. But we want to draw attention to the prank calls is not okay and that there are other numbers to call when you need help. 112 is a emergency number when you are in acute crisis, " says Sarah Hummerdal at SOS Alarm in the press office to the P4 Malmöhus."
"But if it is someone who has passed on April fool's and called the new number, 112 backwards, is unclear. "
"Every year, SOS Alarm, around 100 000 calls. "
