Emergencies and healthcare
Emergency telephone number (fire, police, ambulance)
Operators can speak English as well as Catalan, Spanish, French and German.
There’s a useful guide to the 112 service here.
Medical information telephone number (CatSalut Respon)
This is for medical enquiries that aren’t emergencies – more information here.
The 061 CatSalut Respon App will send the operator your GPS co-ordinates. It also gives general information about the service. This app is available in English as well as Catalan and Spanish.
Call 112 immediately if you see a fire – forest fires can spread rapidly.
The Catalan government has published an information leaflet in English about how to protect yourself and your home from forest fires and what to do in an emergency. See the pdf here.
Report burglaries to the Catalan police force, the Mossos d’Esquadra. There is a big Mossos d’Esquadra headquarters just outside L’Ametlla near to Mercadona. English-speaking officers are often available to help. You can also fill out a crime report online here, but you must also sign it at a police station.
