In case of emergency

The Czech Republic boasts a highly integrated system of emergency help for all possible life situations. Should you find yourself in need of help, it is always just a call away.

The 112 is one of the emergency numbers in the Czech Republic. The 112 emergency line can be used to reach rescue workers in all EU member states. You may dial it from both land-lines and mobile phones. It is free throughout the EU. It allows for a determination of the location of the caller. The 112 line is designed for any person located in the European Union and some other countries who finds himself in an emergency situation and needs urgent help of rescue or security services (firefighters, police and paramedics). The 112 line can also be used if you do not speak Czech, as its operators speak different languages. You can call it from any phone, even if you do not have credit or a SIM card, or if you have a limited signal.

You can also contact directly the national emergency lines:

For disabled end-users communication through SMS is ensured as a universal service.

Additionally you can install an EMS mobile app for your iOS, Android or Windows mobile phone which in case of emergency calls the 155 emergency line and helps emergency services locate your position. You can learn more about the project here:
