Emergency numbers in Poland
112 is the
reachable from the
phones, free of charge,
everywhere in Poland and
the EU. All emergency calls from
the phone boxes are free of charge.
Direct emergency numbers if
you dial from the
998: Fire Brigade
986: Municipal Police
981: Road Assistance
If you are using mobile
phones: remember to dial the local code before the
emergency number; for
example: 22 + 997 to call the police in Warsaw.
If you do not know the local code, dial the general emergency number: 112
and operator will request for you the appropriate emergency unit. But we recommend using direct emergency numbers in the case of danger
(997 - Police, 999 - Ambulance, 998 - Fire), because in some areas the general emergency number (112) still does not work properly.
