New Initiative to Support People in the Community

Emergency Contact Card

Knowing where you can turn for help is an important issue and one that many people, particularly expats face day after day. We at Help Vega Baja decided that we would do something to try to alleviate this problem and recently introduced an Emergency Contact Card ( in both English and Spanish )  providing valuable information of where support may be available.  This full-page card comes already folded to the size of a credit card and therefore fits very easily into a purse or gents wallet.

On one side of the card details of charities  are listed together with other useful telephone numbers, including hospitals, police etc. On the reverse, there is
space for the holder to put as much personal information as they wish. There are boxes for medical conditions, contact information in the event of an accident, allergies, medication and much more - even details of any pets that may be at home alone! 
 The card is aimed to provide, for example, emergency services details should the holder be taken to A & E and unable to communicate. We have gained permission to have the cards available at GP surgeries in the area, chemists, town halls and many other outlets have already started to take them in to offer to clients. Certain areas of the police are now aware of the leaflets including the N332 group who have also kindly agreed to circulate them in their talks around the area. We also aim to speak shortly with the ambulance service, again to raise awareness.  This way we can ensure that we have the best chance of people knowing about the card should someone be involved in an accodent or perhaps simply found wandering the streets.

The leaflets are available from the Charitys San Miguel Centreif you would like to come along to collectone, or if you would like to take a supply to distribute to perhaps a group that you are involved with.

The most important thing is for people to ensure they fill them in.They will only be of help if you fill in the details and carry it with you at all times. There is a copy available on this website that can be printed off plus details of the outlets that have them in stock. If you are interested in having a supply please call us .
