The Emergency Services Staff Network (ESSN) is an international network gathering emergency services and public authorities staff directly or indirectly involved with emergency calls handling world-wide.

ESSN is not about a number. Whether the emergency number is 112, 999, 18, 061, 100 or anything else… the aim is the same: the highest quality of emergency services for the safety of our fellow citizens.

ESSN welcomes all relevant public authorities and emergency services, from Ministry representatives to rescuers. ESSN members are control room staff, technical experts, fire-fighters, ambulance staff, paramedics, coastguards, search and rescue professionals, Ministers and cabinet members, and more…

ESSN currently welcomes over 1500 members from 80+ countries worldwide, with a large European focus!

Feedback from ESSN Members

“EENA is a very good platform for sharing knowledge and experience between European emergency services. All countries should learn from each other.”

“EENA is doing a great job by bringing all stakeholders together! 112 is a crucial thing in the rescue service chain and everybody should work together on improving functioning of and promoting awareness about this European emergency number.”

“EENA’s work in the last ten years was really important to realise how 112 systems are different all over Europe. The ESSN platform made it possible for us, emergency services, to meet and exchange our experience. Now we enter in an age where we will build together a better 112 service.”

“The EENA is playing a very significant role in Europe by bringing together a lot of ideas from many different European emergency services. By working together, we will have a most effective effect.”
