If an emergency occurs while in Denmark, always dial 112. This is a free call and will get you in contact with the police, the fire brigade, or the hospital.
Here are essential phone numbers to know in case of emergencies:
- Call (+45) 112 for life-threatening emergencies and ask for the police, fire department, or ambulance service.
- Call (+45) 1813 for injuries or sudden illness and speak to a nurse or doctor, or to go to a hospital emergency department.
- Call (+45) 114 for police, when it is not an emergency.
Speak slowly and distinctly — state telephone number and address. Emergency calls from public payphones are free.
