Emergency Numbers

It is always important to know the local emergency numbers of the city you live in or are travelling to, or any other useful numbers that may be of use, especially if you are a newcomer.

ExpatWoman recommends that you print these emergency numbers and have them to hand, stick them on your fridge or have them handy in a drawer, it could save yours or your family’s life. It is also recommended to teach the emergency numbers to small children so that they can call for help in case of an emergency in the house.

In an emergency call:

Police = 113
Fire = 114
Ambulance = 115 or ∗9999 (a 911-style emergency medical response service in English and Vietnamese)
