EU threatens UK over 999 calls.

The EU Commission is threatening to take the British Government to court unless it does more to publicise the European-wide emergency services number 112. In 1982, the EU decided that all member states should use the German emergency number 112 and aims for it to eventually replace 999 in the future.

How long will it take the German Fire Brigade to get here? <img src="/forum/images/graemlins/whistling.gif" alt="" /> <img src="/forum/images/graemlins/whistling.gif" alt="" />

I believe the UK Government is going to use the 112 number alongside the 999 number but for different degrees of emergency.This should be fun.

Along with 555, which I gather also works, although never had chance to try it?

well 112 and 999 are the only combinations which will work on a locked cell phone

I believe 911 also works because the British watch so much American television it has surpassed 999 in terms of public awareness. Unless of course that's a myth.

112 works as 999, done it in a sleepy attempt to get the speaking clock (123) one morning and nearly had the pigs out...
