Emergencies

Local Ambulance Services

In an emergency, go to your nearest hospital.  If necessary, request assistance from the local ambulance service.

Emergency service telephone numbers for any country (police, fire, ambulance) can be found on the https://www.smartraveller.gov.au/ website. Just search for the country you’re in, then look for the “Local Emergency Contacts” section.
