Emergency response

If you need to contact the police for a reason that is not immediately life-threatening (for example, your bike has been stolen or a break-in occurred while you were out of your home), call 114 to be connected to the nearest police station.

You should only use the emergency call number 112 (ambulance, fire department, and police) if:

  • you witness an accident in which one or more persons are seriously injured.
  • a person becomes suddenly ill or is unconscious.
  • it is a life-threatening emergency.
  • there is grievous bodily harm.
  • there is a fire or another serious emergency.

When you call 112, you will be asked:

  • who you are.
  • your CPR number.
  • what has happened and who is hurt.
  • where and when it happened (exact address or location).
  • where calling from (phone number).

Try and remember to stay calm and speak slowly and clearly. Help the dispatcher as much as possible with clear information (as noted above), so they can help you as quickly as possible.

Stay until the help arrives. You can help on the spot until professional help arrives and then you can provide the ambulance crew with details.

112 is the emergency number - call 112 only if there is a need for emergency help.
