Citizens in the EU need to remember only this emergency number to reach any emergency service. 112 is particularly useful for anyone who may find themselves in distress and in need of emergency assistance while traveling in the EU.
In Greece, 112 is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week and can connect the caller with:
- Fire Brigade
- Emergency Medical Services
- Coast Guard
- the European hotline for missing children 116000 and
- the National Helpline for children SOS 1056
When a person dials 112, specially trained operators immediately answer the call. The operators speak Greek, English and French.
