The following information is pulled from other expat's posts from several forums, and just collected for my own use. This list is only for Cebu. I have some info for other areas and will add it if anyone is interested. My primary interest just happens to be Cebu.I update it occasionally and repost it on this same thread, and I will add anyones information or comments if they will post it here so I can find it without scouring the whole forum... so no need to quote this entire list if you post a reply here.Tom in Texasps - sorry for the lack of formatting... it "disappears" when I post it... so I added a few highlights and italics to make it a little more user friendly.
CEBU AMBULANCE - EMERGENCY
161 for the Emergency Rescue Unit Foundation (ERUF), based in Cebu City and Mandaue City with several ambulances, well- equiped, well-trained Paramedics. 340-2994 for the Lapu-Lapu ERUF in Mactan; 233-9300 for the Banilad ERUF in Mandaue or western Cebu City. 254-1461 for Chong Hua 253-7511 for Cebu Doc 233-8620 for Perpetual. Best way - rush patient to hospital in your own vehicle. Turn on hazard indicators, put headlights on high beam, keep hand pressed down on the horn, drive on the opposing lane if there's a traffic jam. The Cebuano driving public are used to this and will - to a degree - make way for you, and you will not get busted by the police.
