You never know when you will have an emergency. And for that it is very important to have all the Emergency and Information numbers available to all citizens in Spain. You can save them on your mobile phone to always have them at hand or save this article in your favorites. In this way, you will always have all the numbers you need at your fingertips.
So let's start with national telephones . There are a series of Emergency and Information numbers that you can use throughout the territory, although you should always bear in mind that, for certain emergencies, it will always be better to call the numbers or services provided by each Autonomous Community.
Be that as it may, the Emergency and Information numbers valid for all of Spain are as follows.

Another complementary option is to install the My112 application on the phone . In this way, when you call 112, the application will send your geolocation to the Emergency services. You can download it for both iOS and Android. People who are deaf or hard of hearing can also send an SMS to 679 436 200 .

061 (Health Emergencies)
Write down this number well, because it is the one you have to dial if you need medical attention or if someone around you needs it. It works in all the Autonomous Communities and serves, in effect, to mobilize a team of Urgencies and Health Emergencies.
It's the phone you can use to call Traffic. It serves as a telephone number to obtain information and roadside assistance, but beware, it is not free. If you call any other free service you will also get assistance.
