Un seul numéro : le 112
Emergency number How many Europeans know that there is a single phone number for emergencies in Europe: 112? It’s free and available to all travelers who don’t know the emergency numbers of the European country they find themselves in (15 and 18 in France). It connects them to the nearest police station, ambulance service or fire station. The 112, which is prioritized over all other calls, can be dialed from a smartphone or a cell phone, even when its network is saturated, or even a blocked mobile phone. The people who answer are English-speaking, but translators are available if needed.
