Hm... little question of interest :wink:

In Holland the number used to be "06-11", but was changed to a
so-called European Emergency number ("112"). Does this number also
work in Germany ? "Back then" the convincing argument was that the
number would work all across Europe from somewhere 2000'ish... :wink:

People dont know it. They still dial 110. That used to be police.
112 used to be the firebrigade. Anyway in case of an emergency
it does not make a difference. The callcenters are connected.

So yes it is true with 112 you are right.

112 works in the UK but everyone just dials 999 usually
for all the wrong reasons.
