Emergency Services in Gran Canaria
At home or on holiday while you take every precaution you can, it is not always possible, to avoid having an emergency. If you do find the need to contact the emergency services, in Gran Canaria, the telephone number is 112. You should make a note of it just in case you do need the emergency services. At the earliest possible opportunity, you should make sure that you have someone with you, who is able to translate, especially if the emergency happens to be medical. Of course what may seem like an emergency, may just need a trip to a local police station, or perhaps a doctor, and in this section we are going to give you information on hospitals and police stations, and where to find them. If you need any further assistance, the British Consulate is on hand to help you.
