Emergency call

How to make an emergency call

Who is calling?
Always provide your name and the telephone number
where you can be reached at the moment.

Where exactly is the site of the emergency?
Provide the address and describe the location as good as you can
(direction of travel, distance signs, highway exit, prominent places such as
bridges, big streets ...)

What has happened?
Explain briefly what happened: an accident, a sudden illness, a bleeding wound, a fall ...

How many people are involved?
This is very important for organising assistance.

Only hang up once the person in the control centre has no more questions.
