International Emergency Numbers


One of the “must have” pieces of information when you are traveling abroad is a list of local emergency numbers. GSM cell phones may have pre-programmed numbers available, but given that half the time it seems that my mobile is out of batteries and/or coverage is spotty, I like to have other options readily available. This is particularly useful for independent apartments and villas where you are isolated without easy access to 24-hour front desk staff.

I found an Emergency Telephone Number list on Wikipedia that seems very comprehensive and includes numbers for countries around the world.
