Ok I know I'm overthinking our trip but what's the equivalent of 911 in Amsterdam so I can have in my phone?
More emergency numbers, including stolen credit card/bank card, etc:
It's 112 everywhere in Europe.
Some countries advertise a different number (like 999 in the UK), but 112 works in those countries as well. In fact, using a GSM mobile phone it even works in the USA.
According to Snopes calling 112 in PARTS of the US will roll over to the 911 system.

Read my post. I said ON A GSM MOBILE PHONE.
Translating 112 into the local number is programmed into the GSM protocol
since we have a rollover system in the states ( gsm only) for our european friends..perhaps 911 would rollover in europe..anyone know?
