Who knows more
about our numbers?

Each year SOS Alarm answers three million calls via the emergency number 112. About a million of these calls are made in error – everything from prank calls to calls that should have been made to one of the other service numbers. Do you know what number to call when something has happened?

The faster you answer, the better your result will be. Good luck!
