Emergency services in North America are accessed by dialing 911. We teach our citizens to ‘always’ dial 911. Emergency services have a different access number almost everywhere else. Know before you go and confirm when you arrive.
Do you speak the foreign language? Learn important phrases like “Do you speak English?” “Help!” “Police!” “Fire!” “Ambulance!” in your host country’s language.
Always register your trip at Travel.State.Gov. Important health and safety information is available on this site. Your US Consular will be able to contact you in case of a family emergency back home, or get in touch with you in case of a natural disaster, civil unrest or terrorist threat. Stay Safe!
