Dear list members:

I'm looking for your help in confirming my memory of how the South Korean public pay phone listed the emergency numbers, around 1991. If I remember correctly, there were three numbers in the following order:

113 report a spy

119 emergency 

112 police

Would anybody remember if the numbers were listed in the above order? I'm mainly trying to confirm the order of the numbers and not the numbers themselves.
