Fire and Ambulance
To report an injury, fire, or severe sickness, dial 119 for the 24-hour fire department. Give the operator your name and explain the nature of the emergency and the location.
How to Make an Emergency Call
Speak clearly and slowly.
If possible, enlist the aid of a Japanese speaker in placing the call. If the operator doesn’t understand English, these phrases will be helpful.

Keikan o yonde kudasai. (Please send a policeman.)
