Whether you are here one week, two months or permanently, 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. Bilingual 911 operators are not always available, and when they are, they may or may not understand you. Knowing how to respond could mean the difference between life and death.

Plan to attend Peace of Mind’s seminar, “How to Be Prepared for a Medical Emergency.” Key and updated information will be provided on how to plan, prepare, and respond to medical emergencies in San Miguel de Allende. Local medical and legal experts will be on hand to answer questions from the audience and provide valuable tips.

Learn how to 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.

RSVP required; please reserve your seat by calling Peace of Mind at Mexican cell number 415 108 0810; Vonage 971-327-7187. Or email See our advertisement in today´s La Atencion for more details. Also, be sure to bring a pen and paper to take notes.

Peace of Mind is a community service project created by Melanie Lansing and a team of San Miguel medical and legal experts for the purpose of raising awareness among the English-speaking community on medical emergency preparedness.
