They are not that likely to happen but if they do, you want to be as prepared as you can possibly be in the situation of an accident. The main command is to stay calm – granted, easier said than done – and call help.There is essential one number you should memorize as a foreign person, it’s 112.

It is the European-wide emergency number and can be dialed from every telephone and mobile. This number has top priority at all times thus other calls can be interrupted to let yours get through to the officials.

State your location, what happened, how many people are affected and if you can tell to what evident extent they are hurt. Don’t hang up now, wait for further queries.

112 is the European equivalent of the American 911.
