Do you need a doctor’s help right now? Is it a medical emergency?
- What is an emergency?
An emergency is when life is in immediate danger or when a serious crime is happening.
Here is what you should do:
- In a medical emergency, always dial 911.
- What will happen when you call 911?
The 911 operator will answer “911… police, fire or ambulance?” If this is a medical emergency, say that you need an ambulance. Stay calm and do not hang up! Be ready to answer questions like: What is the emergency? What is your name, address and phone number? Make your answer short but as complete as possible. In a few minutes, the ambulance will arrive at the address that you gave. The team of paramedics (ambulance workers) will give the patient the necessary help and take them to the hospital if necessary.
