If anyone is in immediate danger - please call 000 now!
Triple Zero (000) is Australia's primary telephone number for assistance to life threatening or critical emergency situations and works on mobile and fixed telephone lines.
112 is the International emergency number available on mobile phones but not fixed line telephones. Dialling 112 directs you to the same Triple Zero (000) call service and does not give your call priority over Triple Zero (000).
106 is for anyone with a hearing or speech impairment who require police, fire or ambulance. 106 directs you to the TTY (also known as a teletypewriter or textphone). This service is provided by the National Relay Service (NRS) and available 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
Both 000 and 112 will work even if you do not have credit on your mobile phone and are not charged.
Police Assistance Line for non-urgent police assistance call 131 444.
