Emergency Telephone Numbers

Emergency Telephone Numbers By Country
There are a number of three digit emergency phone numbers which are frequently used throughout the world. These numbers put you through to a switchboard operator and then your call is routed according to whether you need fire services, medical help or the police. It is worth noting that these numbers can be different on landlines to mobile phones. For instance the emergency services number in New Zealand is 111 but if you have an urgent, non-emergency need to speak to the traffic police you can dial 555 from a mobile only. Some countries also have three separate numbers. In Guatemala it is 110 for police, 120 for medical and 123 for fire.
