Railway Trail and Medical facilities in Bermuda

We are a senior couple (one with some mobility issues). Following are my questions and please accept my sincere thanks in advance:

*1. Does the Rail Trail have rest stops with seats/benches?

*2. Does the Rail Trail have public restroom facilities?

*3. What would be the best access point for a manageable path for someone with mobility issues?

*4. Does Bermuda have adequate medical facilities/hospitals?

*5. What is the "emergency number" and can one use a US cell phone to call, if necessary?

Many thanks!!

The emergency number is 911 just like in the states and should work on your cell phone. King Edward VII Memorial Hospital is a modern, accredited, full-service facility including emergency, and acute/critical care services. It is advisable to have travel insurance that includes emergency medical evacuation coverage anytime traveling outside of the country just in case.

The BERMUDA RAILWAY TRAIL-- http://www.bermudarailway.net/ --is not a walking path through a suburban park. Most of the various '..sections..' of the BRT are well worn but UN-even paths--sandy, grassy, rocky, etc.. There are certainly places to stop, sit and rest but benches and more formal seating areas are not much in evidence...nor are bathroom facilities, much beyond the occasional Porta-Potti.. For someone with physical mobility issues, perhaps the best section of the BRT is the western end--from Mangrove Bay (behind the Somerset Police Station)-to-Somerset Bridge. This 'section' of the BRT runs partially along local service roads and is paved for the entire distance (approx. 1 1/2 mi.)

Most sections of the BRT are accessible from public roadways and public bus routes. Access points are marked with BRT signage-- https://tinyurl.com/hg4wct9 .... www.bermuda-online.org/railwaytrailsign.jpg
