In Israel, There are separate emergency hot-lines. The main ones are:
- 100 - Police;
- 101 - Ambulance;
- 102 - Fire brigade.
- 1207 - Home-front Command.
Those number are available free of charge from all public payphones, local landlines and local cellular phones.
In case of a car accident:
When there are injuries:
- Help the injured!
- Call 100 for the police. Identify yourself and your location. Do not hang up your call before instructed to do so.
- Vehicles involved in an accident with casualties may NOT be moved without explicit order by a policeman (unless leaving the vehicles as is may cause severe damage to people).
When there are NO injuries:
- All involved vehicles should be moved out of the way to a safer place.
- If there is a damage claim by one of the involved drivers, all involved drivers MUST submit their details to each other. IMHO, details may include: Driver's identification number, driver's license number, vehicle license plate number, insurance policy number. If you cannot identify the documents, please use a local.
- Should an involved driver refrain from submitting his/her details, call 100 for the police.
Please be advised: You should copy the details from the original papers. Don't count on the driver's words.
Have a safe journey in Israel.
