Club news: BIHAMK saves lives in national flooding

Publication date: 21 May 2014

During the floods between 14 – 20 May, BIHAMK took action, engaging all of its technical resources and man power to assist the people of Bosnia and Herzegovina. The floods, which endangered more than million people, have been shown to be one of the most severe natural disasters that have ever struck the country.

BIHAMK's Traffic Information Centre employees were continually working double shifts and handled almost 100,000 calls from citizens, media, police and government representatives for the duration of the flooding. The Club provided timely and accurate road information, warning people on road closures and countless landslides. This information proved to be of life-saving importance when the B-H road network was operational only in the southern and partially western parts of the country. At the same time, in extremely difficult and dangerous conditions, the teams of BIHAMK’s Road Patrolmen performed more than 900 different types of roadside assistance services.

As Bosnia and Herzegovina and surrounding regions have been facing disastrous consequences of the recent flooding, BIHAMK continues to provide help and would like to remind all motorists travelling in the country that its assistance can be requested through its Alarm Centre number 1282. This service is provided free of charge in the floods stricken areas.
