Crisis Contacts for North and Central America

In times of a personal crisis, you want to find accurate information and fast. I have looked at many lists of crisis contacts, and determined that some on them are inaccurate or incomplete. So I have decided to put together my own, starting with North and Central America. Stay tuned for the rest of the world, up next, I will do Europe.

If you find any errors, or have additional information, please do not hesitate to contact me, and I will add it to my list.
