Steps to take in the event of emergency using International SOS
What to do in an Emergency?
If you need medical or security help while abroad on a Tufts-related trip:
1. Call the equivalent of ‘911’, if appropriate
2. Call International SOS at + 215-942-8478 (worldwide, 24/7/365) for additional help, including non-emergency assistance. You may call collect. Tufts International SOS number is 11BCPS000093
International SOS provides medical and security advice and referrals and emergency evacuation services to eligible Tufts travelers abroad. To ensure access to these services, it is crucial that all international travel be registered in the Tufts Travel Registry. International SOS will inform the appropriate parties and stakeholders at Tufts University who can provider further assistance as needed. Some International Employees working in the U.S. also have access to International SOS coverage and should have received an email directly from International SOS or their department that includes a unique member number.
