When we asked members about emergency services in Hungary, they wrote...

"Emergency services in Hungary are generally reliable and efficient. In the event of an emergency, the best way to call for an ambulance is to dial 112, the national emergency number. This number is free of charge and can be dialed from any phone, including mobile phones. The operator will ask for the caller's location and the nature of the emergency, and will then dispatch an ambulance to the scene," explained one expat living in Hungary.

"In my case the major medical facility is about 36 to 41 km (Siofok or Kaposvar). Emergency services are slow compared to the US and not so sure about the ambulance medic's qualifications but I tend to think it is less than in the US! Although some ambulances in Hungary actually may have a physician on it but I don't know what the criteria are..," said another in Fonyod, Hungary.
