EU emergency agencies using social media

  • For emergencies dial 112

112 is the European emergency number, reachable from fixed and mobile phones, free of charge, everywhere in the EU. 112 will not replace existing national emergency numbers. In most countries, it operates alongside the existing national numbers. However, Denmark, Finland, the Netherlands, Portugal, Sweden, Malta and Romania have opted for 112 as the main national emergency number. 112 is also used in some countries outside the EU (such as Switzerland and South Africa) and is available worldwide on GSM mobile networks.

How does 112 work in the country you are going to visit?
