Single European emergency phone number – 112

112 is the number you can call free of charge for emergency services in the European Union from a fixed or a mobile phone. The phone number is dialled without a code. The service is 24/7.

Use 112 in the event of a sudden real threat to life, health, safety or property, such as: fires; floods; emergency medical cases; tornado (hurricane winds); earthquakes; accidents; industrial accidents and other pollution; radiation; winter storms; suspected anthrax or other biological agents; other accidents and incidents.

Do not call 112 for traffic information, weather information or any other general questions and information.

Unnecessary calls can overload the system, putting at risk the lives of those who really need emergency help.
