Dealing with emergency situations in Sweden

Hello everybody,

Dealing with unexpected situations abroad can be a very difficult matter. In order to better help expats and soon-to-be expats in Sweden face such tricky situations, we invite you to share your advice and experience.

What are the key emergency numbers you should know by heart?

In the event of a legal problem, an accident, a natural disaster, an injury or the death of a close family member, what are the first things to do in Sweden?

What are the things to plan ahead in order to better cope with such unexpected situations (registration at the Embassy, transport, medical, comprehensive insurance for instance)?

If you have gone through such experiences in Sweden, do not hesitate to share your story.

Thank you in advance!



Hello Manden,

Thanks for your participation.

Perhaps could you please elaborate a little more and explain to which emergency service exactly this number corresponds ?

Thank you


112 is the general emergency services number, used throughout the EU.
