Emergencies in Uttarakhand

The thing to remember is all over Uttarakhand, if you are in trouble, medical or someone has troubled you or in case of theft, or if you are stranded somewhere while trekking and find yourself lost, the first thing to do is if your mobile is working, call '108'. You can also dial 108 from any telephone, without paying anything for it. This is a toll free number run by an NGO called EMRV, which is available all over Uttarakhand. They accept calls for all sorts of emergencies, from medical to police to fire. Theortically, they should be able to reach you within 15 mins all over the State. There is no charge for the service and if you are ill, their ambulance will take you to the nearest hospital. In case of theft or assault, which is very rare in Uttarakhand, they will send a police vehicle to you. It is a good service and they are reliable. Remember, their service is free.
