When you need a fire engine or an ambulance because of a fire, sudden illness or severe injury, dial 119 and your call will be connected to the Fire Department. Although there is no charge for the use of ambulances, please refrain from calling one for casual injuries or illnesses and use your own car or a taxi, since ambulances are emergency vehicles.
If a fire breaks out, shout “Kaji da!” (Fire!) as loud as possible to alert your neighbors, call the Fire Department (119) and calmly conduct initial fire-fighting procedures. It is a good idea to be prepared on a regular basis by keeping a fire extinguisher on hand or water in your bathtub in your home, and by knowing the escape route in advance in case of a fire. Initial fire-fighting procedures must be abandoned once the flames reach the ceiling. Be careful that you do not become so absorbed in extinguishing a fire that you fail to secure an escape route for yourself.
