All COA employees and the staff at the reception desk are trained to render assistance in the case of accidents. The assistance offered by Trigion and COA before the ambulance or fire brigade arrives is important in ensuring a proper outcome.
In life-threatening emergency situations, you can directly call the national emergency number 112.
