According to Davao Tourism:
Davao City is one of only three areas in the world, after the United States and Canada, to have the Integrated Emergency Response System 911, a fully integrated, computerized response system linking the people of Davao City to the emergency resources of the government.
Davao’s emergency 911 hotline is the first in the country, providing 24/7 emergency response and police assistance in minutes within the city’s urban area. Its 24-member Urban Search and Rescue Team is trained to handle land and sea rescue, as well as recovery operations, while its Emergency Medical Technicians are among the best in the country in first-aid skills and patient transport care.
