Is it true that you can use 112 on your mobile for certain emergencies?

Yes - 112 is the international emergency number and if the call is made from New Zealand it will automatically patch through to 111.

112 will work from all mobile service suppliers (GSM).

However, it is more direct to dial 111 in emergencies when in New Zealand.
