We cannot affect a SAR in their countries but we have bi/multilateral agreements in place which means if they cannot search or rescue a request can be forwarded via the Minister's office for assistance. We do however stay in close contact with them.
As soon as the ARCC becomes aware of an issue in foreign countries we do notify Foreign Affairs immediately to speed up the process.

You can phone them 24 hours a day
Alternatively, talk to any of the local ATC's via radio, or call an emergency on 121.5Mhz
This service costs nothing to you, and they can immediately mobilize everything they need to save the victims lives, or bring them back to their families.
Thanks John Boucher for the idea. I have made this available from any of the forums, and it will always stay on top.
