Call 911

Know What To Do In An Emergency

 

In all emergency cases, call 911 immediately to ensure that your local Emergency Medical Service provider may be notified and professional care can be dispatched as soon as possible. As soon as you give your location information to the dispatcher, a unit is dispatched while you remain on the line with the dispatcher. Make sure your home can be identified, even in the dark. Your house number should be visible and large enough to read from the road. Turn on an outside light. If possible, have someone go outside to wait for the first-responders and medics.
