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.

  • ADDucation’s emergency phone number list is compiled by Joe Connor, last updated 01 Apr 2021.

The international country codes for emergency numbers are standardized in some areas:

  • 📞 112 is the 🇪🇺 EU emergency number which also works in India, UK and all EU countries (alongside any pre-existing country-specific emergency numbers)
  • 📞 911 is the 🇺🇸 US emergency number which works across North America and many US territories
  • 📞 999 is the 🇬🇧 UK emergency number which also works and in many former British colonies and British overseas 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 emergency numbers 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.
