Emergency Numbers
These numbers can be dialed toll-free from any phone:

  • General Emergency 112
  • Police 17
  • Ambulance (SAMU) 15
  • Fire 18
  • SOS burns (Hôpital Cochin) 01 58 41 41 41
  • Poison treatment center 01 40 05 48 48
  • Sexually-transmitted diseases 01 40 78 26 00
  • Drug Info Service 0 800 23 13 13
  • AIDS/HIV Info Service 0 800 840 800

To report a theft: do not call the police emergency number if you've been pick-pocketed or robbed (unless the thief is still in your room); instead you'll need to go to the closest Police Prefecture. It's a horribly long process, but may be necessary for your insurance company.
