Emergency phone numbers for ambulance, fire or police in 200 different countries

The first emergency phone number in the world was set up in London in 1937 and used the three digit 999 to make it easier to remember. The United States considered using it when they set up a similar service in 1968, but decided on 911 instead because of technical issues, particularly the 2nd digit which at that time could only be one instead of zero for other numbers.

112 was adopted by the European Union in 1991, and these three numbers now account for the majority of emergency phone numbers in use worldwide.

Although the listed emergency numbers listed here are officially correct, mobile or cell phone mast towers often automatically redirect 112 or 911 calls to the correct local numbers for the country you are in anyway.

Our database is derived from various sources including the US state department database of emergency phone numbers.
