You will be asked what your emergency is and the location where you need assistance. You should remain calm, speak clearly and slowly, and say:
- I need the fire department at 123 Main Street, my house is on fire.
- I need the police at 123 Main Street, someone’s breaking into my neighbor’s house.
- I need the emergency squad at 123 Main Street, there is a man having a heart attack.
You should always include the name of the municipality you are in, not your post office.
