Having living in Singapore for many years, I recalled that few years back I witness someone just fell down and knocked his back head and there was a need to call an Ambulance. And I was panicked coz I have no idea what is the number, do we have to call 911? or is there any other number in Singapore. Fortunately there was some uncle that got the right number to call. Therefore I think it’s quite important for us to know such numbers.

Here are some Useful numbers in Singapore


  • Police: 999
  • Fire & Emergency Ambulance: 995
  • Non-emergency Ambulance : 1777
  • Police Hotline : 6225 0000
  • Traffic Police: 6547 0000

Call 999 only in an emergency.

Do the following:

  • Give a clear description of the nature of the emergency
  • Give your name, telephone number and the location of the emergency
  • Stay on the phone; do not hang up

The police guarantee to answer a 999 call within 10 seconds and in urgent cases be on the scene within 15 minutes. For non-emergency matters, use the police hotline or contact the relevant Neighbourhood Police Centre.
