Why Every Expat - Newcomer and Old Timer - Needs Rodny Direct Emergency Services

This WAS your life in the US, Canada or Europe

Most of us expats lived our whole lives in places where we understood the language, culture, customs and bureaucracy. We were comfortable in any situation and knew who to call in an emergency - if your car broke down, call AAA in the US or CAA in Canada. Call 911 for almost any emergency. 

This IS your life in Panama

Panama is a beautiful and peaceful country. However:

  • Most expats don't understand the language well, or at all.
  • We did not grow up with Panamanian customs and culture.
  • We don’t know the laws 
  • The bureaucracy is a hopeless muddle, even for those with passable Spanish.
  • There is no AAA or expat-friendly 911. 

What could possibly go wrong? When Speed Bumps Become Mt. Everest

  • At a routine traffic stop the cops are threatening to tow your car away and put you in jail. Who can intervene on your behalf?
  • A fender bender in a parking lot escalates to a confrontation thanks to lack of understanding. You need a translator - fast.
  • A flat tire on the the highway leaves you stranded, vulnerable and helpless. Who do you call for help?
  • Your spouse is having a heart attack at 4am. Who do you call to get an ambulance quickly? How will you describe in Spanish, exactly where you are? How do you alert the hospital?
  • You wake up at night with burglars breaking into you house - quick, which police do you call and how do you tell them where you are? In Spanish.

To tame Mt. Everest, you need a Sherpa - an expert guide. You need Rodny.
