Stuck in Dead Zone During an Emergency - Dial 112

The Emergency Number worldwide for Mobile is 112.   See Wikipedia for further details.   

If you find yourself in a dead zone during an emergency and are unable to connect to your regular emergency services number, such as 911 (in the United States) or 999 (in the United Kingdom), you can try dialing 112.

112 is an emergency number that is widely recognized and can be dialed in many countries, including the United States, Canada, and most European countries. Dialing 112 can potentially connect you to emergency services even when you have no network coverage or are in an area with a weak signal.

When you dial 112, your call is routed to the local emergency services in the country you are in. It is important to note that while 112 is generally available in many countries, it's always advisable to familiarize yourself with the emergency contact numbers specific to the region you are in, as there may be country-specific emergency numbers in addition to 112.

Additionally, in some cases, your mobile phone might be able to connect to another available network in the area, even if your primary carrier has poor coverage. It can be helpful to enable the "carrier selection" or "network selection" feature in your phone settings to allow it to connect to alternative networks in case of emergency.
