The Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO) provides guidance for British nationals on who to contact If something goes wrong while you are abroad.

The European emergency number
If you need emergency services and you are in Europe, the phone number you should use is 112 which is the number for the emergency services across Europe. No country, city or district code is needed prior to 112.
In the UK 999 and 112 work in parallel.
Call 112 only in case of sudden real threat to life, health, safety, environment or property and when emergency services rapid assistance is needed.
