Every big city has its risks. While there’s no need to be paranoid, it is a clever idea to stay safe. Here’s a guide to what to look out for and what to do in case you need help: a. If you use public transport, be sure to keep an eye on your personal belongings, especially your phone and money. b. If you travel by car, take the appropriate safety measures. Note that everyone in the car needs to wear a seat belt, and it’s best not to stop for strangers. Try to park in well-lit locations where there are other people about. c. Avoid showing your cash in public and, if possible, carry a small amount. d. In any crowded place, you might want to strap your bag and/or camera across your front, rather than your back. It’s also important to use a secure closure, such as locks, zips, etc., ensuring that it's always properly closed. e. In restaurants and bars, ask for the price of food and drinks to avoid surprises when paying. f. You may come across people who will try to divert your attention with various excuses (saying you have stains on your clothes, selling flowers, asking for your signature, etc.). Do your best to avoid them, as they could be pickpockets. g. You may also find people in the street seeking your participation in forms of gambling games that appear easy to win. Remember that these people run their games ‘professionally’, with the aim of earning money through dishonest means. Such activity is illegal and prosecuted by the police as fraud. h. On the beaches respect the colored flags indicating whether it's safe to swim. If you’re going alone to the beach and planning to swim, it’s best not to leave valuables unattended, and, in general, you should only take with you what you really need. i. Some important phone numbers: Emergencies: 112 (see below) Fire brigade: 080 Health emergencies: 061 Local police (Guàrdia Urbana): 092 Duty courts: 93 567 31 40 Duty pharmacies: 93 481 00 60 Call 112 If you’re the victim of a crime, ask for help from a police officer or call 112. This number works for all emergency services, including ambulances and the fire brigade. It’s free, works 24/7 and you can even call using your mobile from places where you can’t get a signal with your provider (so long as another company can; you can get a signal everywhere in Barcelona except a few spots underground). Operators can help you in English, French and German as well as Catalan and Spanish. If you prefer, there are two pass you can download, ‘112 accessible’ and ‘My 112’, for accessing the service – your phone will then use geolocation to identify your position so the respondent can find you. Both apps are free, useful and easy to use. For details, contact info@bcu.cat.
