In Case of an Emergency

In the event of severe illness, an accident or other life-threatening situation in which you need immediate medical treatment, you must call the emergency call centre by dialling 112.

When you have dialled 112, you will hear the following message in Danish ‘De har kaldt alarmcentralen 112. Brandvæsen, politi og ambulance. Vent roligt her.’ (Translation: ‘You have called the emergency call centre 112. Fire Service, Police and Ambulance. Please wait).

At the emergency call centre, you will be asked for your name, address and the phone number from which you are calling. The call centre will then make sure that an ambulance, the police or some other form of help is sent immediately.
