Security and emergency situations

In an emergency in Australia, dial 000 from any phone for fire, police or ambulance services.  The Triple Zero (000) service is the quickest way to get the right emergency service to help you. It should be used to contact Police, Fire or Ambulance services in life threatening or emergency situations only. Emergency 000 lines should not be used for general medical assistance. You may also dial 112 from mobile phones which will override key locks on mobile phones and therefore save time. When the operator answers, please give them the following essential information:

  • type of emergency (fire, police, or ambulance needed)
  • your house number/location
  • street name and nearest cross street
  • suburb
  • state
  • Melways reference (if known).
