What to do in an emergency
Every French hospital maintains an emergency room that is open around the clock. Physicians and pharmacies are organized to provide night and weekend hours. Every pharmacy posts in its window the name and number of the physicians and pharmacies currently providing emergency services.
In case of medical emergency, dial 18 (fire) or 15 (emergency medical services) from any landline telephone. From a cell phone, dial 112, the all-purpose emergency number throughout the European Union.
