The type of emergency could be (but not limited to) any of the following:

  • Car accidents
  • Fire
  • Health assistance
  • Physical aggressions
  • Theft
  • Rescue
  • Natural disasters
  • Life risking situations or scenarios

If you are making your home in Spain you should also note that by law Spanish taxi drivers are obligated to transport medical emergencies to hospital when asked to do so. Any driver can also turn his vehicle into an ambulance if necessary. To do this you would switch on your hazard lights and fly a white piece of material from the window. Misuse of this system will result in a heavy fine.
