I know this question sounds ridiculous but it's important and I need to know the answer. If I knew that somebody in Ireland was in trouble and needed help (say for example: an ambulance) but there was no one else around them that could help them, how would I go about calling emergency services for them?
For example: I am on the phone to a friend in Ireland every day and I worry about how would I be able to help them if something came on suddenly (like they starting having a fit or something) and they weren't able to hang up our call and dial emergency services themselves.
I've done my research and already know that 999 and 112 are the main numbers for emergency services in Ireland, but would my call even go through to them? I'm in the US and don't have international calling, so my calls won't even go through to any other numbers outside of the US (though I can receive them).
Would I have to dial an area code before dialling 999 or 112? If you dial 999 or 112 in the United States, will you be connected to something else entirely? (Like a 411 type of deal?) or what if I just dialled 911 and explained the situation, would THEY get in contact with emergency services in Ireland?
