    App 112 BE

    One single app for the fire brigade, an ambulance or the police

    The most important advantage of this app is that you do not have to remember the emergency numbers and therefore cannot forget them if you're in distress. You just tap the ambulance, firefighter or police icon depending on what kind of help you need.

  • Storm, flood: don't call 112 for ordinary storm damage. Preferably use the online form
  • As of June 20, 2023, you will be able to contact the wasps desk at This way, you will be helped immediately or referred to the electronic desk in your emergency rescue zone. Only if there is a wasp nest near your home will the fire department or a private exterminator intervene. As a matter of fact, wasps are very useful for "cleaning" nature. They are a very important natural insecticide : for example, the wasps from a single nest can wipe out thousands of mosquitoes in just a few hours.
    We therefore ask you to fill in a "wasps" form only if you are actually inconvenienced by their presence.
