ITALY-coming soon a unique number for emergencies

Soon the 112 will be the unique number for emergencies. Only three digits to contact the emergency department, the fire brigade and the police. The news comes from the system of toll free numbers in Europe that wants a citizen to have the opportunity to contact the emergency services across Europe, from any country, at any time.


The unique number is part of the Health Pact just signed by the Government and the Regions. Another innovation also comes from medical service for non-urgent care: in this case, since it is not an emergency, the number will be different. 116117.
