Emergencies in Iran
Emergency services are extensive in Iran, and response times are very good compared to other local regions.
• ☎ 110, is the telephone number of the local Police control centre, it is probably easiest to phone 110, as the local police have direct contact with other emergency services, and will probably be the only number with English speaking operators.
Other Emergency Services are also available:
• ☎ 115, for Ambulances
• ☎ 125, for the Fire and Rescue team (these numbers are frequently answered by the Ambulance or Fire crew operating from them, there is little guarantee these men will speak English).
• ☎ 112, the international number, 112 is available from cell phones, and will usually connect you to the relief and rescue organization (Iranian Red Crescent Society), often use for outside the cities events such as climbers missing.
