Emergency Contact Information

If you are in immediate danger, you should always contact local emergency services immediately. These numbers are different in other countries, so it is important to research beforehand to ensure you have local emergency contacts. Some countries have different numbers for ambulance services and fire response.

If you do not need to contact local emergency services, or if you already contacted local emergency services, it is best to then contact your program director, even before calling back to the U.S. They can assist you in addressing the immediate concern.

It is natural that you may want to call your family in an emergency. However, they are far away, and may not be able to help you immediately. For this reason, we highly recommend that you contact local emergency services and your program director before contacting anyone back home.
