The Cruz Roja - Chapala offers workshops regularly on how to be prepared for a Medical Emergency. This 60-minute workshop, held at the Lake Chapala Society or at neighborhood gatherings, discusses the steps to take to become prepared, explains the services Cruz Roja-Chapala offers and includes time and materials to begin to assemble a Medical Information Kit.
Participants in our workshop assemble a “Vial of Life” with important medical information that is placed in the refrigerator at home, where first responders are trained to look. Participants also fill out a bilingual wallet card with important medical information and receive a list of important phone numbers and phrases to use (in Spanish/English) in an emergency. The cost is a nominal 50 pesos.
