Be Prepared for 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 don´t think ahead about how emergency medical services work in Mexico. For one, bilingual telephone operators are not always available, and when they are, they may or may not understand you. Knowing how emergency response works could mean the difference between life and death.
