The Madrid HHH has prepared a First Aid Manual to help with the most common medical emergencies on the context of our running group. Note that some of the topics talked about may or may not be useful in every location, such as weather-related emergencies or animal bites.We encourage our hashers to bring a phone with them with enough battery just in case.
It’s also a good idea to have an emergency app such as to send your location to the emergency services.
The emergency numbers of Spain are the following:
Emergency number: 112 (in case of doubt, use this one, it’s free and you can call from a locked phone)
National Police: 091
Guardia Civil (Police outside of the big cities): 062
The Madrid HHH is providing this First Aid Manual on a purely informational basis to the global Hashing community. The Madrid HHH (and the author) do not assume any liability for its use or any consequences thereof. When in doubt it is always best to contact a medical professional.
