Important and Emergency Telephone Numbers

Triple Zero (000) is the primary national emergency number in Australia (including Victoria).

Triple Zero (000) is intended only for use in life-threatening or time-critical emergencies.

For calls to the State Emergency Service (SES) the Australia wide number 132 500 can be used (except for Northern territory). This number should only be used for non life-threatening situations.

When you dial triple zero (000) you will be asked if your emergency requires police, ambulance or fire, and you will then be connected to the relevant service. These trained dispatchers will gather information about your situation and respond with appropriate emergency services and resources. The phone dispatcher is also able to help with information such as CPR and advice while the services are on their way.

Other relevant numbers are:

Crime Stoppers – 1800 333 000;
Threats to national security – 1800 123 400;
