Subject: problem starting Saab diesel after running out of fuel

I foolishly ran out of fuel in Saab 9-5 3.0TiD yesterday 10 miles from home (the display showed I still had enough fuel for 30 miles). An insurance company man brought me 10 liters of fuel and it took me 1.5 hrs to start the engine. At times I turned the starter for as long as 30 secs. I unsuccessfully tried to locate a fuel filter or a fuel pump somewhere under the hood. Finally, when the battery was half-dead, the engine started. My questions are as follows: What is one supposed to do in such situations (other than make sure they do not happen)? What are the risks/potential damage? Where is the fuel pump located anyway? Thanks and best regards TW
