Emergency Numbers Worldwide

List of Emergency Numbers 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.
