911 in Mexico

Source: Mexico News Daily | Saturday, November 14, 2015

An emergency? 911 will be the number to call; one single number for all emergency calls was announced last November by President Enrique Peña Nieto as one of a series of measures in response to the Iguala-Ayotzinapa events of September 26 and 27. At the time it was to be 911. But last April the federal Chamber of Deputies approved legislation to make 066 the official number.

Now with using 911 as the Mexico's emergency number; the existing emergency numbers will be required to migrate to it.
Including:

  • 060 for local police
  • 061 for state and Federal District judicial police
  • 065 for the Red Cross
  • 066 for the national system for citizen emergencies
  • 068 for fire emergencies
  • 080 for security and emergency calls

911 will work on both fixed land lines and mobile telephones beginning early next year. So until then use the emergency numbers above. It will be managed by the executive secretariat of the National Public Security System. Telecommunications service providers will be required to provide free access to the emergency number.
