Australian emergency phone services will be revamped to speed up assistance to people needing urgent help. The triple zero national emergency number will be complemented by a national state and territory emergency services number, 132 500, and a non-emergency police assistance number, 131 444.

'' Having one nationwide number to call when you need assistance in non-life threatening or non-time critical situations will make it easier for people to remember and use wherever they are in Australia,'' federal Attorney-General Robert McClelland said.

Callers to the triple zero service will be directed to the other numbers for non-urgent help from police, fire or ambulance services. Nearly half of all calls to triple zero are non-urgent , Mr McClelland said.
