I figured I'd share some of the info from my pit books related to useful emergency contact numbers and hospital locations. Special shout out to Rob Hackett for compiling this.

Some of this data may be out of date (I think 2017 was the last update) since things can change quickly down there so if you have newer updates, post it and I'll roll it up into the master document.

If you have more to add, please do! I think it would be very useful for folks on this forum to share up-to-date emergency info and I'll start maintaining a Google document with updates as people provide them.

I've added the online link to getting an FFM Visa and I strongly recommend people do.

Chasing in Baja can be dangerous, particularly if you're new to the process. Chasing at night in Baja can be REALLY dangerous, even if you are experienced.

Take your time, have two people who are awake and alert in the front seats at all times and be careful. We all have to make it back to work on Monday.
Here are some important pieces of information that I always roll with in the pit books:

FFM VISAS:
For those late-departures going into Baja, there's an online link where you can fill out the Forma Migratoria Múltiple (FMM) and print it. It makes crossing just a little easier since you can walk up to the desk and get it stamped.

Instituto Nacional de Migración - Forma Migratoria Múltiple

The FMM is required and, for short trips, it's free. It'll head off any potential difficulties should you be asked for it.

For those that use the medical clinic on the way into San Felipe it is now across from the ARCO gas station. Yes that is correct. It is NO longer a Pemix. The first gas station down the 5 is now an ARCO gas station.

Awesome RDC Thread!

Question on the ARCO gas stations in Baja: Do they accept CC's? The BP's and others do as have the Pemex, just wondering if the ARCO's are like they are in the states. Tks!

Yeah, I'm not sure where the clinic but if someone can confirm the address, I'll update the document.
