EMERGENCIES IN RUHR
All three emergency services in the Ruhr Metropolis are highly reliable, with response times shorter in the cities. The most visible are police officers, who are generally courteous when approached. In the case of an emergency dial 110 for law enforcement.
The fire brigade and ambulance services are well equipped and efficient. Emergency response is normally only a few minutes away. Dial 112 for either service.
Personnel come from a diversity of cultural backgrounds. Those attending to the issues of residents invariably act professionally. Those in need of hospitalisation will also be cared for in an environment with good facilities.
Pharmacists run an all night rota system. Medical and dental clinics to on-call doctors who actually make midnight house calls, all form a medical service that is one of the most comprehensive in the world.
