Emergency in Düsseldorf

Help is near when needed

Written by Garry on

 

Emergencies happen out of the blue and Dusseldorf’s local service response times are on the whole extraordinary. The local police are invariably courteous and correct perhaps because they have so little to do in a city that’s so safe. Dial 110.

The fire brigade and ambulance services are also efficient and well equipped. Emergency response and aid are never more than a few minutes away. Dial 112 for either emergency service.

All-night pharmacists are allocated rota systems. So are many medical and dental clinics and on-call doctors who actually still make midnight house calls. These all add up to a medical service that is second to none.

Ambulance

The quick and highly trained response teams that react to an emergency in Düsseldorf belonf to five organisations. They are the city's Feuerwehr, the Arbeiter-Samariter-Bund, the Deutsches Rotes Kreuz, the Johanniter-Unfall-Hilfe and the Malteser Hilfsdienst. Their number is 112.

Hospitals

The hospitals in Dusseldorf are part of the (still) relatively well-funded German health care setup that is supported by the high taxes of the social system. Some of the shortest waiting times in Europe can be found and a level of professionalism that is often to be envied.
