Slovakia – emergency telephone numbers

155 Medical

150 Fire

158 Police

159 Local Police Dep. (not for serious crimes)

18 777 assistance for Truckers

18 900 assistance for drivers

18 155 Air Transport Europe

18 300 Emergency number in the mountains (especially for hikers, ski-alp..)

112 Emergency

I highly reccommend to not use 112 as emergency telephone number. It is very ineffective. Use 155, 150 or 158 and they will help you faster

PROS of 112

+ operators are very professional

+ no problem to communicate in English or other foreign language

CONS of 112

- very ineffective

- after few minutes of talking with operator you will be redirected to 155, or 150 line. After than you have to discribe your situation again = you have no time to waste in emergency situations

I visit Slovakia regularly and have always kept the 112 number stored on my mobile phone in case of any emergencies.

It’s very useful to know there are some better alternatives should anything nasty happen.

Thanks :)
