The free telephone 112, is the general number to ring in the event of an emergency. Depending on each case, an operator decides whether to divert the call to the service required: ambulance, fire brigade etc.

If the call is related to Residents’ Security, the operator calls the Ertzaintza who deal with the problem or pass it on to Basauri’s Municipal Police, depending on the nature of the emergency or the circumstances at the time.
