In An Emergency

DIS Emergency Contact Information

Current students receive contact information via an e-contact card that they should save in their phone for quick reference if needed.

Emergency Assistance

In the case of a medical emergency in Denmark that requires help immediately, call 112. This is similar to calling 911 in the U.S., and therefore should only be used in a real emergency. However, in the case of an emergency, do not hesitate to call for yourself or others. 112 is a common emergency number throughout Europe. As a general rule, you should know the 911 equivalent for any country you plan to visit and review U.S. Department of State Emergency Resources.

In the event of an emergency DIS will implement its Emergency Response protocol, which includes coordination of emergency communication strategy, resource utilization and consultation with the appropriate governmental and non-governmental agencies and other stakeholders.
