How to Be Prepared for a Medical Emergency in San Miguel
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 operators 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 your ducks in a row could mean the difference between life and death.
Plan to attend this second lecture in a six-week series on end-of-life preparedness. This seminar “How to Be Prepared for a Medical Emergency,” is being presented by Peace of Mind in San Miguel. Timely information will be provided on how to plan, prepare, and respond to medical emergencies in San Miguel. Local medical and legal experts will be present to answer questions from the audience and provide valuable tips. You can prepare for medical emergencies and take ownership of life situations that may seem out of your control. At this two-hour presentation, you can access information and resources that will help you reduce your risk of medical tragedy. This is not a sales presentation.
Medical emergency topics include:
- Emergency medical response services: How do they work here?
- Public and private hospitals: What is the difference?
- Reporting emergencies: Who to call and what to expect?
- Legal documents: What do I need to carry while in Mexico?
- Life or death preparedness: What facts do I need to know?
Seating is limited, so please be sure to arrive early. Bring a pen and paper to take notes. See you at St. Paul’s Church 4-6pm on Monday, July 20.
