Discussion and comments
Always come with 「まさかの場合、〜」、「まさかの時、〜」
In #5842, まさかの場合 should preferably be まさかの時は and in #5843, まさかの時 should be まさかの時は

There are 19 まさかの時 examples in WWWJDIC

which can be "borrowed" as necessary. In WWWJDIC examples the Japanese is usually good, but the English is sometimes dodgy.

a lot of those examples are duplicates, but i added the best. FYI the link on this page to "Search big database for more examples of まさかの〜" searches the same WWJDIC example database.

Wouldn't example [#5843] be more succinctly translated as, "If there is anything unexpected, please call."? It's not really necessary to include the "to this place" (or better - "here").

「まさかの時」を「何か在ったら」と同じ意味で把握しても良いですか。
