I sincerely hope that you will not need this page often. But what to do if you suddenly need a doctor or dentist during your holiday in Tenerife? Or what should you do if your wallet is stolen? In short: what to do in case of emergency??

In the links below you will find all the information you need. I have deliberately chosen sub-chapters so that you can directly click on the relevant information if needed. In case of an emergency it is essential to act as quickly as possible, so with the separate sub-chapters it will hopefully save you some valuable time.

Okay, let's start with the all-important emergency phone number:

112 emergency number

Alarmnummer 112

This is the general number for: 

  • Ambulance
  • Fire brigade
  • Law enforcement

After an emergency has been reported, the appropriate authorities are called in to resolve the emergency. Telephone support will also be provided as long as professional help is not yet on site.

Important to know:

  • This number is completely toll-free and 24/7 bereikbaar.
  • Even if the phone is locked, it is possible to call the emergency number 112 (even without a SIM card) as long as there is mobile coverage. Furthermore, the number can also be called from a landline or telephone booth. 
  • The specialized staff speaks English and German and Spanish.
