Nigeria Emergency Numbers for Security, Health and Natural Disasters

An emergency is a sudden, serious, and frequently dangerous situation that puts people’s health, lives, property, or the environment in danger immediately and calls for immediate action. In some circumstances, mitigation may not be possible, and organizations may only be able to provide palliative care for the aftermath; most emergencies necessitate urgent intervention to prevent a worsening situation.

More so, while some emergencies are apparent (like a natural disaster that poses a severe threat to many lives), many less severe incidents necessitate the observer (or affected party) to determine whether they constitute an emergency. The exact definition of an emergency, the agencies involved, and the procedures employed vary by jurisdiction and are typically established by the government, whose agencies (emergency services) are in charge of emergency planning and management.

Nigerian Emergency Numbers

Emergencies happen whenever, wherever, and to whomever, no one is above disaster or accidents, but they can be checked. In emergencies, people usually require quick dials to access help or call for help. From movies and happenings in the global south, many people will think that the emergency number to call is 911, but that helpline is not in Nigeria.

Instead, the official general policed emergency phone number in Nigeria to dial is 112 or 199. This is especially important in cases of theft or kidnapping, fights, or chaotic disaster involving arms that could harm or end your life or the lives of your loved ones. You can reach the country’s federal fire service and ambulance services by dialing “112” or “199.”

However, since some emergencies are specific and require expertise, the federal government of Nigeria has set up. It continues to set up agencies in charge of responding to emergency issues over the years. Some of these agencies also have regulatory functions to oversee the operation of response and mitigation of emergencies. These emergency agencies cut across security, health and the environment.

The agencies that respond to security, health, and natural disasters are discussed in the remaining sections of this article, along with their emergency numbers.
