Calling 911—Knowing What Happens in a Medical Emergency
By Melanie Lansing
You can now call 911 from anywhere in Mexico in a medical emergency, but do you know what happens next? Unfortunately, many tourists, snowbirds, and residents don’t. Many of us shut the topic out of our minds. Others think that Seguro Popular will handle everything. Medical emergencies happen every day. Knowing how medical emergency response works could mean the difference between life and death.
