Emergency Numbers – Full list from across the world

This is an updated post from two years ago. I have added several COVID19 numbers, n this current situation with travel starting again for many and COVID19 still impacting people, you need to know the emergency numbers of the country(ies) you are going to?

In many parts of the world, people believe the emergency phone number is 911, the North American response number. It is not universal nor is 999, the UK number.  112 has become standard in many parts of the world but not everywhere.

Also, in some countries, there is one number for all services: fire, police and ambulance. In other nations, the numbers are different for each service.

I encourage people to know the emergency service number (s) of the country they are going to before travel. Write the numbers down and have them in your passport/purse/wallet and /or programmed into your phone. When in a crisis situation, you may not be able to count on your memory to work or be able to easily find the number. Also look for the Covid19 hotlines that exists in many places.

My summary list is below. This US State Department list of emergency numbers is very comprehensive and this Chartbin diagram is helpful. Check out this list of EMS numbers globally. If you have an apple iphone, ipad or watch, you can also download a useful app called tripwhistle which gives you those details for the location you are in.
