Singapore Emergency Telephone Numbers
Who to call and what to say in an emergency…
|Fire & Ambulance||Tel: 995|
|Non-Emergency Ambulance||Tel: 1777|
|Police Hotline||Tel: 1800 353 0000|
|Traffic Police||Tel: 6547 0000|
Call 999 only in an emergency. Do the following:
- Give a clear description of the nature of the emergency
- Give your name, telephone number and the location of the emergency
- Stay on the phone; do not hang up
The police guarantee to answer a 999 call within 10 seconds and in urgent cases be on the scene within 15 minutes.
When using an international mobile telephone dial 112 (GSM phone) or 911 to be redirected to the 999 emergency number.
Medical Emergencies and Hospitals
If calling 995 or 1777 the ambulance will take the victim/patient to one of the Singapore Government Hospitals. The Government ambulance service guarantees that it will be at the scene within 20 minutes, often this is much faster. If an ambulance called via 995 is not for a genuine emergency, a fine of 180 Singapore dollars will be charged.
