Oh...and yeah you could also dial 112 which will redirect you to the police.

I work at the emergency line in Catalonia (the 112, for short), and I've spoken to people from different countries working at an emergency line, and at least for "modern" Europe, dialing the emergency number, usually 112, will make an operator redirect you to whatever services you need.

Meaning, if you need an ambulance, firefighters or the police or whatever, you just need to dial the unified emergency number. There's no need to remember every single number.

I understand that making emergency numbers separate may cut down on response time, but what if the emergency is "someone just tried to break into my house and we got into a fight, he has been bashed over the head and I have been stabbed"?   
Wouldn't it take longer to contact police and ambulance(not you, I assume the operator would do that) than for a single operator to dispatch multiple necessary services?

122 and 144 normally get you to the same phone service (I don't know about 133 but the hotline worker can get you policeman too of course). You'd also get there with dialing 112 (I think that one's Europe wide) just that you can select the language there.

The different numbers are more of a time relict. The only difference probably is that the hotline worker sees which of the numbers you called and can ask the right questions right away.
User avatar #28 to #20 - tumor (08/04/2014) [-]
In this case you would just call the police and tell them what happened. They'll send an ambulance along with some cops.

If you need both you can just call one of them and they'll do the rest.

Imagine a suicide hotline but instead of suicide it's for male agression.

In western Europe (not sure if UK included) calling 112 is the best solution for police, medical, fire and rescue. Using this number automatically connects you to the geographically nearest dispatch office meaning they usually have a faster response time for the right service.

Australias is 000
User avatar #6 to #1 - jordiepie (08/04/2014) [-]
But in Australia, 911 will work as well.
Probably because we watch so many US TV shows they thought they'd add it to be safe.

Doesn't that get you to the non-emergency line?
#17 to #16 - adriaan ONLINE (08/04/2014) [-]
no, it's get you to the same place as 911. it's there mainly for tourists and the need of the eu to have one emergency number 112.

There are 81 countries where you can dial 112 as an emergency number.

They say that one of the reasons that 9-1-1 was chosen was that, because rotary phones dialed numbers by repeatedly disconnecting and reconnecting the line, the initial series of nine rapid pulses in 9-1-1 was very unlikely to occur accidentally while installing a phone or doing repairs.
