Raising awareness of 112
Did you know that less than half of European citizens identify 112 as the number to call in an emergency anywhere in the EU? With increasing number of Europeans travelling throughout the EU, it is especially important that EU citizens know that a 112 call will allow them to speak to emergency services in the country that it is dialled. In Ireland, it is vital to know that dialling 112 and 999 will lead you to the emergency services.
