United Kingdom - Contact
Jump to category:
In the UK all 999 or 112 calls go through to emergency operators of either British Telecom (BT), Cable & Wireless (C&W), Kingston Communications or Global Crossing (RailNet). This depends on which phone network the caller is using. These operators ask the caller which emergency service is required and then connects the caller to the control room of the service requested in the caller's geographic region. Virtually all the emergency service control rooms have access to translators if the caller does not speak English.
999 is the commonly used telephone number for emergency services (although 112 also works).
