......which number to ring?
...in the USA?
...in the UK?
.....Do you know the non-emergency number for the Police- to report or discover something?
You may need to know, if there's an accident or loss....
I have even joked that it's time this elderly woman had her 1st tattoo, with the various numbers prominent on her arm.....
Just for the record, in the UK it's 999, because in the days of phones with dials, a person with poor eyesight could feel her way to the last number.

The information that came with my international phone (Mobal), to get police, fire, or ambulance world-wide, dial 112. I don't know if this is special for my phone (which might then connect with another number depending on my location) or if it will work with other phones.
Yes, TG, it used to be just in the Eurozone, but now is accepted in much of the world- in USA it's automatically rerouted to 911, to 999 in the UK, to 000 in Australia, etc. It's the one number to remember wherever you travel.
