Emergency

In case of an emergency, dial triple zero (000)

Australia’s primary emergency call service number is triple zero (000), which can be dialled from any fixed or mobile phone, pay phones and certain Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) services. When you dial triple zero (000) you will first hear the recorded message: ‘You have dialled emergency triple zero. Your call is being connected.’ An operator will answer your call and ask whether you need police, fire and rescue, or ambulance. There are also two secondary emergency call service numbers, 112 and 106.

112 is available from all mobile phones.

106 connects to the text-based relay service for people who have a hearing or speech impairment.

All calls to the emergency numbers, whether from fixed, mobile, pay phones or VoIP services are free of charge.
