The Baja Western Onion - August 25, 2018

Introducing ExPat 911 - LifeLine Emergency Services - ExPat 911 is a service designed by Expats for Expats, to help with reporting crimes, fires, medical issues or other emergencies. Many Expats have not been able to break the Spanish language barrier. Imagine you're in a life-threatening emergency, trying to speak to Emergency Responders in Spanish? Would you be able to explain your symptoms, details of a crime in progress, or even your location? After speaking to many of our fellow Expats, we realized that an emergency response service like ExPat 911 was needed to help people report their emergencies without worrying about the language barrier.

The idea is simple... Whenever you use our phone app to report a crime or emergency - 24/7 - you'll always reach a native, English-speaking operator. At the same time you're reporting your emergency in English, a Native, Spanish-speaking staff member is communicating your emergency to the authorities in Spanish. This ensures vital details are conveyed within seconds. ExPat 911 even uses GPS location mapping to pinpoint your location! (GPS Mapping requires a GPS-enabled phone)

Live Safe and Secure in Mexico using our ExPat 911 LifeLine Emergency Reporting Service. To learn more and get started today, go here: ExPat, Baja California Norte and Sur, and Throughout Mexico

 Sweet Samuel is on an adventure and needs your help! - We are seeking dedicated Padrino support for 2-year-old Samuel from Pescadero who needs special treatment only available at The Children's Hospital of Mexico in Mexico City.

After weeks of planning, the family finally arrived in Mexico City yesterday to learn that Samuel needs additional testing and cannot return until after their planned departure date. Now, they are facing unexpected medical expenses, airline fees and a longer hotel stay which add up to much more than anticipated. And, they will have to return again to CDMX to have the procedure performed at a later date

Donations can be made by going to and clicking on the DONATE button.

If you are in Mexico City and can assist with the family’s accommodations, please contact Dr. Alejandra Peña Salguero at alejandrapenasalguero [- at -]
