Has anyone found on the net or put together an emergency number list for use when in remote areas?
Don't want to reinvent the wheel if someone has already done it.
Yes I did a search before posting.

000 with mobile or satphone

'MAYDAY' over radio waves

If you are out of service with your mobile phone provider 000 won't work, so try 112, this will connect with the service provider/s servicing the area that you are in.

G'day Willem, I read your recent jaunt into the Simpson, and as you said, it is soft out there this year.
We also had a blast on our crossing.

even some service providers dont use '000', so '112' will be the only number able to be used.

It is also good to know that it is the only number that can be dialled from a mobile if the keypad or phone is locked i.e. you come across a in trouble traveller who has a phone with a key pad that is locked, you wont need the unlock code.

112 works on an Iridium satphone to connect you to the Australian 000 Operator, even if you have NO SIM card in the phone.

I guess it depends on what you define as emergency?

If I was going to do a big trip I would take with me the numbers of:
Banks, Insurance people details, contact list of family and friends and I am sure others will come up with lots more

Yes agree with all of the above but I was after a list of RFDS numbers, mechanical repairs etc.
I'd rather be calling a number direct than waiting on directory assistance or ringing triple 0 for a vehicle problem especially at satphone rates.

Hello traveller2

The RFDS Safety and Survival Handbook has a very comprehesive list of phone numbers and is also an excellent publication to take on remote area trips .

OK - so who is going to volunteer to check all these numbers and compile the perfect list into a document? Serious, genuine task for someone willing. We will gladly publish it for all to download/share in the main part of the site.

Thank you to Nathan who has just submitted a very extensive list categorised per travelling region. I'll work this into the main part of the site asap and advise publication via the newsletter.

Don't forget there is also the Members File Swap for anyone wanting to contribute any other sorts of useful files/checklists etc. By far, a better place for enabling people to access your submissions rather than sifting through the general Forum.

Good post guys!
