0-3

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search

0-3 is the landline emergency telephone number used in Russia, Kazakhstan (and possibly elsewhere in the CIS) for summoning emergency medical service. Even if an ambulance is not otherwise marked with other logo such as the Star of Life or the Red Cross they will prominently display this telephone number.

As of 2007, the 03 telephone number is in process of being replaced with 103 in some countries/regions, with plans to be eventually displaced by 112 in future.
