A Room with a View (and a Fire Escape): Emergency Preparedness on Your Family Holiday in Italy
June 24, 2014
Although it may not be the most glamorous part of your Italy travel arrangements, careful planning for the event of an emergency is as important while on holiday as it is at home, especially for those with young children. The following simple precautions and tips for emergency preparedness while traveling in Italy with children could be lifesaving:
- Gather the local emergency contact information for the area you plan to visit and keep this information with you in your purse or backpack, as well as on site in your hotel or vacation rental. It is also advisable to list any allergies among members of your party, travel and primary insurance details, and the phone number of a third-party contact not traveling with you.
Emergency phone numbers for Italy: Police: phone 113. Ambulance: phone 118. Fire brigade: phone 115.
