Emergency Response

In case of emergency while traveling, seek local assistance as applicable and contact International SOS (ISOS) as soon as possible at 1-800-523-6586, or call collect at +1 215-942-8226. They can help you find a medical facility and assist with other medical and security concerns. Medical and police services can vary widely. Consult with ISOS in advance of your travel to understand how local medical and police resources respond to emergencies and whether and how travelers should engage those resources.
