One of the “must have” pieces of information when you are traveling abroad is a list of local emergency numbers. GSM cell phones may have pre-programmed numbers available, but given that half the time it seems that my mobile is out of batteries and/or coverage is spotty, I like to have other options readily available. This is particularly useful for independent apartments and villas where you are isolated without easy access to 24-hour front desk staff.
I found an Emergency Telephone Number list on Wikipedia that seems very comprehensive and includes numbers for countries around the world.

This is a challenging time for our clients given the uncertainty around the spread of coronavirus, particularly for those with near-term travel plans in impacted areas. We’re working with our suppliers on being flexible with their booking conditions, and enabling families to postpone travel to a later date without a penalty, when possible. Likewise, given the unpredictability around destinations that may be impacted in the future, we’re helping clients planning new trips and understand ways that they can protect themselves until the situation improves. We are ready to help our clients work through questions and concerns.
