Tourists, Snowbirds, Permanent Residents: Do You Know How to Respond to a Medical Emergency?
By Melanie Lansing
Whether you are here one week, two months, or on a permanent basis, being prepared for a medical emergency is extremely important. Tragedy can and unfortunately does strike. Many of us take for granted that the 911 operator will answer the phone and direct us as needed. Here in Mexico, things work very differently. For one, bilingual operators are not always available, and when they are, they may not understand you. Knowing how emergency response works and what you need to have all of your ducks in a row could mean the difference between life and death.
