Local services

Emergency services

In case of emergency, dial:

  • police: 117, or 161 from a cellular telephone
  • firefighters: 118

Every community has a local gendarmerie service, which should be your primary contact in case of an emergency.

Make sure to have the contact number of the closest gendarmerie readily available.
