Emergency numbers for unforeseen cases

Emergency Numbers

If something bad happens, you should phone the police or go to the nearest police station. You cannot expect the policemen to speak English fluently, so if you don't feel comforta­ble with your Polish skills, ask a Polish friend to go there with you. If there is nobody to go with you, remember that the police are obliged to provide you with a sworn translator.

We know that many of you will take a trip to the Polish mountains. In the Tatra, which are over 2000 meters high, you should be especially prepared to contact the mountain emergency service GOPR if things go awry. Always have your mobile with you and in case of emergency call 0601 100 300. There is also an emer­gency service in the lakes area, Maz­ury: 0601 100 100 (Mazurska Służba Ratownicza).

If you lose your passport, you have to contact your embassy to get a replacement. Keep a photo­copy of your passport (pages with your picture and visa) just in case. If you lose any of your home country documents - passport, ID, Student ID - you will need to obtain a police certificate for this. You can get one at a police station.


112 - emergency number for all the three - police, fire and ambulance service

999 - emergency ambulance service

997 - police

998 - fire department

Calling these numbers is free of charge both from a phone box and mobile. You can dial them even if you do not have any credit on your mobile, and even without entering the PIN code.
