The transnational database ensures that emergency services in one country can contact emergency services in another country, by providing a single contact point per country.

Without this number, it is impossible, or it takes an exceptionally long time to enter into contact with emergency services on the other side of Europe.

At present, 20 European countries have signed up to the database.

Unfortunately, some countries still do not provide this long-number and this can delay emergency operations. In emergency situations – when every second counts – not being part of this database could be fatal for citizens in distress.

How can countries join this database?
