112... one emergency phone number for all of Europe

Only a quarter of the people in Europe know that there is now a common emergency number for all countries — so major rail, air and other transport companies are joining with the EU Commissioners to mount a campaign starting tomorrow to publicise the number.

112 is the anytime anywhere emergency phone number for all of Europe for police, fire and ambulance that is a free call from land-lines and mobile phones… in the UK the other number to remember is 101 which is the non-emergency police number that recently replaced the individual numbers for each police force.
