The system proves to be very useful in the event of traffic accidents, and injuries and illnesses in public places. Public lighting is managed by Technologie hlavního města Prahy (The City of Prague Technology Company), established last year, which will greatly improve the existing system.

"In future, the caller should not have to tell the operator the number of the pole, are we are discussing with the possibility of introducing QR codes and other methods with the emergency services, that would make the process even faster," adds Councillor Jan Chabr.

These upgraded labels should appear on public lampposts in the course of 2019.
