EMERGENCIES

911

Dial 911 for a dispatcher who will send you the police, ambulance, or firemen.

How ambulances work in Cozumel

If you are in an accident or have some kind of medical emergency on Cozumel, call 911 or have someone call 911 for you. That emergency response number will dispatch an ambulance to your location. Most likely, other ambulances will hear the call and go to the scene as well. The reason that can happen is that each ambulance is owned and operated by local, for-profit hospitals (plus the Mexican Red Cross) and they all want your business. Each ambulance will only take you to the hospital that they are working with, not the one you ask to go to. So, when you are getting into an ambulance, make sure it will be taking you to the hospital you prefer. If it is taking you to a different hospital than the one you want, ask for the ambulance that belongs to the hospital you prefer.
