How do I find emergency contact infomation?
911 will connect you to the local police station wherever you are in the country of Belize including on Ambergris Caye. The police will be able to render assistance in almost any circumstance. They will also alert the Fire Department and summon an ambulance if needed.
Other contact # in San Pedro are:
Police 911, 206-2022, 226-2926
The Coastal Xpress 226 2007
Island Ferry 226-3231
Belize Tourist Board - 02-31913
A list of doctors is available on the San Pedro Phone Directory ... Very severe medical cases are normally treated at the Karl Heusner Memorial Hospital in Belize City. The response time would normally be about one hour. That is in day time, a regular flight to Belize City, etc. In night time, a chopper from the Belize Defense Force. There is also Wings of Hope, which is a medical emergency flight service that services San Pedro. The Hyperbaric Chamber Service are the ones who mostly use the Belize Defense Force choppers since they can get into remote areas such as Lighthouse Reef, etc. (Where Blue Hole is located).
