Emergency Numbers Worldwide

List of Emergency Numbers & Calling Codes Around the World

Emergency numbers list including the local/in-country emergency telephone numbers for the police, ambulance and fire services for countries/territories worldwide. The international country codes for emergency numbers are standardized in some areas:

  • 112 is the EU emergency number which works in all EU countries (alongside any pre-existing country-specific emergency numbers).
  • 911 works across North America and many US territories.
  • 999 works in Great Britain and in many former colonies and British territories.

To use international dialing codes on mobiles/cell phones add a + sign in front of the dial code. On landlines/hard lines you may need to omit numbers (for example leading zeros) for local numbers.

Emergency Numbers Facts & Fiction!

  • 112 and 911 are universal emergency numbers. They work from most telephones, mobile phones and cell phones worldwide.
  • GSM mobile phones/cell phones are programmed to recognize 112, 911 and 999 and often other emergency numbers including 118, 119, 000, 110, 08 etc.
  • In some countries it’s possible to make emergency calls without a SIM card installed. Check before you rely on it. You need an ACTIVE SIM card to make emergency calls in many countries. For example the UK, Germany, Belgium, France, Cyprus, Romania, Slovenia and others.
  • Mobile phones/cell phones are programmed to make emergency calls from the mobile phone/lock screen.
  • Making hoax emergency calls is illegal in many countries, including the UK.
  • In the UK you can use a relay service app on your mobile phone to send emergency texts.
