Moscow Warnings and Dangers: 175 reviews and 121 photos

From what I understand, the Russian emergency services do not normally speak English or any other foreign language. There is a special branch of police who assist foreigners who have been the victims of crime but I'm not sure of the number. Here are the emergency numbers that I do know of, they should work from any phone.

Fire 01, Police (Militsia): 02, Medical emergency: 03, Gas leaks: 04

If you're an American citizen you can use the consulate's after hours emergency line. (7) (095) 728-5000. Daytimes they have American Citizen Service's telephone: (7) (095) 728-5000

911 and 112 will NOT work in Russia!

Phone: 01=fire,02=police,03=ambulance

Review Helpfulness: 3.5 out of 5 stars
