Italy emergency numbers, which one

Jump to last reply

We'll be driving through Italy starting next week and I still didn't figure out something.
I feel like I have to ask this question to a Italian cause everytime I ask someone else the answer is different.
What are the emergency numbers in Italy? Okay, I kinda know them by theory. 112, 113, 118...
But which one should I really call in each situation.
Some have told me 112 is the general emergency number and it's the best for me to call in case of a medical emergency cause they sure will be able to answer me in English. Some have told me this is the number of the carabinieri and I shoud call it only in cases of small police emergencies.
In the other hand a person told me the general emergency number in Italy is 113 and that's the one I should call in case of a medical emergency to be answered in English. But some told me this is the regular police number.
And then there's also the 118 medical emergency number but no one could tell if they'd speak English with me on this number.
So at this point I'm completly lost haha

So my simple question is: What number should I call in case of a medical emergency where I'll be able to speak English??
