Emergency Phone Numbers and Phrases in Europe

I really hope none of us will ever need to contact the emergency services when travelling abroad.  The stress of accidents or ill health are bad enough without the need to get your message across in an emergency.

So I've put together some useful words and phrases in a variety of European languages, plus the Europe-wide emergency telephone number - 112.  This link will take you to a PDF document in my Public Dropbox here:

I can't guarantee the words and phrases are 100% accurate, but they are close enough to allow you to get your message across either on the phone, or pointing to key phrases if dealing with a local speaker.

Please feel free to share this as widely as you like.  I've printed off a colour copy, laminated it and keep it in an easily accessible place in our campervan.
