The ignorance of people about the general helpline and emergency numbers in Saudi Arabia encouraged me to write this post. It is very important for all of you to know at least important emergency numbers in KSA such as Saudi police number so that you can call them in case of emergency.
Some days ago, a friend of mine was jogging in a park when he fell down and went unconscious immediately. His wife called me instead of calling the related emergency number in Saudi Arabia i.e. 997 for help. Since I knew these emergency number by heart, I immediately called the Saudi ambulance which was there in the park before I reached there. Recommended: What are the rules for emergency leave in Saudi Arabia?
They took him to the nearest hospital about which I could never know if I had picked him from the park where the incident took place. See, how important it is to know the emergency number in Saudi Arabia as it could be a difference between life and death.
