EMERGENCY PHONE NUMBERS IN POLAND Posted by on Oct 26, 2012 in Regulations

Emergency phone numbers (telefony alarmowe) great to keep handy! Especially when you find yourself in trouble in a foreign country! Here are emergency phone number in Poland:

From fixed phones:

999: Ambulance – Ambulans, Karetka pogotowia

998: Fire Brigade – Straż Pożarna

997: Police – Policja

981: Road Assistance – Pomoc Drogowa

986: Municipal Police – Straż Miejska

Using mobile phones: remember to dial the local code before the number, for example: 22 – 997 to call the police in Warsaw. Emergency calls from phone boxes are free of charge. If you do not know the local code, dial the general emergency number : 112. The operator will request the appropriate emergency unit.

These numbers may also be useful:

International flight departure information (22) 650 39 43

International flight arrival information (22) 650 42 20

Hopefully you will not have to use most of these numbers too often:)

My name is Kasia Scontsas. I grew near Lublin, Poland and moved to Warsaw to study International Business. I have passion for languages: any languages! Currently I live in New Hampshire. I enjoy skiing, kayaking, biking and paddle boarding. My husband speaks a little Polish, but our daughters are fluent in it! I wanted to make sure that they can communicate with their Polish relatives in our native language. Teaching them Polish since they were born was the best thing I could have given them! I have been writing about learning Polish language and culture for Transparent Language’s Polish Blog since 2010.

    112 should be enough. 🙂
