Estepona is not only known for its picturesque landscapes but also for its well-structured emergency response system. Whether you're a resident or a visitor, knowing the essential phone numbers and important information for emergency cases is crucial. Here's a comprehensive guide to help you stay prepared.

In Estepona and the Costa del Sol, a comprehensive network of emergency services is available to residents and visitors alike. For immediate medical assistance, Helicópteros Sanitarios provides air and ground ambulance services, with a fleet ready for urgent healthcare needs and transportation. They can be reached at 952 81 18 18 for medical emergencies.

Additionally, the local number 061 is dedicated to ambulance services, while 091 and 092 connect to the national and local police, respectively. The Civil Guard can be reached at 062, and the fire service at 080 or 085. In case of forest fires, which can be a concern in the region, the number to call is 900 850 500. For sea rescue emergencies, the contact is 900 202 202. It's important to note that while these services are robust, there is no guarantee that English will be spoken, so it may be beneficial for non-Spanish speakers to have a translator available in case of an emergency.
