European 112 Day 2017

February 11, 2017 in Europe

European 112 Day is celebrated on February 11, 2017. 112 is the common emergency telephone number that can be dialed free of charge from any fixed or mobile telephone in order to reach emergency services (ambulance, fire and rescue, police) in numerous European countries, including all member countries of the European Union, as well as several other countries in the world. Since 2009, 11 February is the European 112 Day. At this occasion, events take place to promote the existence and the appropriate use of the EU emergency number.

In some cases calls to emergency numbers can be made when other calls cannot, e.g., when a telephone has been barred from making outgoing calls for non-payment of bills. 112 is managed and financed in the European Union by each Member State (country) which also decide on the organisation of the emergency call centres. The number is also adopted in the candidates for EU accession and members of the EEA agreement.

80 countries of the world use the 112 number for emergencies, e.g. Algeria, Australia, Belgium, Canada, Denmark, Egypt, France, Germany, Hong Kong, India, Italy, Kuwait, Luxembourg, Malaysia, Netherlands, Pakistan, Russia, South Africa, Spain, Switzerland, Turkey, United Arab Emirates, United Kingdom, Vatican City and Zimbabwe.
