Default Collection of Emergency numbers

After reading about the last couple of hours that our beloved friend Robin went through, i felt there was a chance if he was attended by the Doctors little earlier.

Most of the times when we are invloved in an accident or close to an incident, the first thing we think of is the emergeny phone number. But if we are in an unknown location, we may not have any idea of the emergeny numbers in the place.

100 is the standard number, but sometimes there will be a different number to directly reach an ambulance service. I am starting this thread to collect all the emergeny number in one place. I suggest everybody to post numbers of your city and any other location you are aware of. We don't know but you could be a life saver.

Default Emergency numbers in Bangalore

Many Bangaloreans will be aware of the tragic accident on Sankey Road last month where a young man, Arjun Nair, was killed in a hit-and-run while trying to get an auto to his home.

What was even worse is that he was left lying on the road for about an hour; he could have been saved had any passers-by called the ambulance or Police.

Today's papers carried a heart rending letter from his grief stricken mother, wondering why in this modern city no one cared to help her son. Forget stopping, one can understand that fear, but no one called the police or ambulance.

I was very moved by this and then decided to make sure I had the ambulance and emergency numbers on my mobile. To my shock, I did not have any emergency numbers! I had all along believed that Airtel, my provider, had programmed emergency numbers into the SIM card.

So I searched the internet and came up with these sites providing critical information:

Bangalore Traffic Police
Bangalore City Traffic Police

The emergency numbers listed here are:
Ambulance:
Toll Free - 105711
Toll Free - 1062 / 108

Of these, I found that 1062 is the number for CTC SANJEEVINI
Ambulance service Bangalore - CTC SANJEEVINI - 1062

This is what is written here:
What one must do in an accident or in any medical emergency?

Remember! Next time you witness an accident or any medical emergency, just call 1062.

Within seconds a CTC SANJEEVINI ambulance will be dispatched to the distress location. A trained paramedic with a state-of-the-art ambulance will arrive at the distress location within minutes of the call to render immediate first-aid and then transport the victim to the nearest CTC accredited hospital. Care will be provided during the transportation to sustain the life.

The other number, 108, is of EMRI Emergency Management and Research Institute (EMRI) and can be referred here:

GVK EMRI - GVK Emergency Management and Research Institute - 108 Services

It says:

1-0-8 Emergency Response Service is a 24X7 emergency service for medical, police and fire emergencies. The service is available for the entire state of Andhra Pradesh ,Gujarat, Uttarakhand, Goa, Tamil Nadu, Karnataka, Assam, Meghalaya, Madhya Pradesh and Himachal Pradesh.

The main highlights are

It is a 24x7 emergency service.
Toll Free number accessible from landline or mobile
Emergency help will reach you in an average of 18 minutes.
******
"People can dial 108 without any prefix or suffix from any phone (landline or mobile) and seek help".
This further information is taken from here:
Dial 108 for all emergency situations across India

I don't know if this information is already posted here, my apologies if so. But, I am ashamed to admit, I didn't know all this and thought I'd share this.

Very informative thread Damu. Checked my mobile and didn't find any emergency numbers.
One question though. Can these toll free number 1062 be called from a mobile?

zteg, same question bothered me and incredibly, none of the emergency sites gives this information!

I finally found this:

"People can dial 108 without any prefix or suffix from any phone (landline or mobile) and seek help."

A very useful thread Damu.

Last day, a fellow bhp'n was stranded in Mysore in a very weird situation at 5:00AM. What helped most were a few contact 24x7 contact numbers.

Well, I would request fellow bhp'ns to post the working and local helpline numbers of all the manufacturers.

Let me start with Ford, Calicut: 09847933333

You can get these guys 24x7 and they are really knowledgeable, unlike the SA there. Really helpful

Exclamation Live "on-the-road" Help Thread.

The idea behind this thread is to provide help to any bhpian while on the road.

Many a times while on the move, one comes across situations which are not premeditated.
Be it an accident, an injury, a conked of headlight, a flat tire or any other incident, post it here and I request the community to assist the member by what ever means possible. Be that by providing information of the nearest police station, local garage, hospital, or by any other means appropriate.

Yes this information can also be searched on the internet. Many would ask then - why this thread?
The analogy is very simple. Imagine yourself in a situation of crisis. You can post a short 2 line description of the incident and what assistance you are looking for over here and get back to searching for nearby help. In the interim even if two members decide to search for any assistance, you triple the chance of finding what you are looking for in the same time frame.

Now to answer the question about who would answer and when ?
Well the main purpose of this thread is to provide real-time information to the person who has posted about an incident. Hence I request the members to keep an eye out for new posts.

There is only so much that we can do, however in the time of an emergency, EVERYTHING counts. So I request all the members of the community to pool in their knowledge of the local helpline numbers. This bank of important numbers could be added to the first page itself for the benefit of guest viewers as well.


To kick of the thread, I am posting some numbers of the police stations in Gujarat :-

1) Navrangpura, Ashram Road, Behind Bata Show Room, Ahmedabad :- 079 - 26440698

2) Sayajigunj, Vadodara :- 0265 - 2362400

3) Palej, Bharuch :- 02642 - 277333

4) Near Station Road, Anand :- 02692 - 52450

5) Rander Road, Surat :- 0261 - 2766152


Let us all contribute in making this unique community of petrolhead's even stronger.
Drive Safe,

Drive Safe,
This is indeed useful and much needed thread. Thanks Enigmatic for reviving it. A couple of suggestions from my end.

1. It will be better to create a directory of these numbers and other useful tips and place it as a sticky thread or document in the main forum. During an emergency it would be as difficult to search so many pages of this thread as searching in the Internet.

2. Then do we need this thread - yes. For 2 reasons.
a. We can contribute new numbers or tips through this thread and update the 'directory' periodically.
b. A better use of the thread, I see, is to send SOS messages when any member is stuck on road or any emergency. He can post a message asking for information or help and available members can reply or contact him over phone. That way this thread will act as a emergency road assistance.
