How to Use 9-1-1
Call 9-1-1 first in a medical emergency. Serious medical emergencies are time-sensitive and seniors often call a family member first. This delays medical care. Medical emergencies include:
Paramedics need to know specific information about you during an emergency. Download and complete our patient information full-sized and wallet-sized card and keep it in a convenient location should you need it. Have the following information readily available:
medical conditions you have
medications you're taking and how much
allergies you suffer from
date of birth, emergency contact and telephone number
health card number
Help save critical time by:
Putting animals in another room
Turning on lights
Ensuring your house number can be seen easily
Unlocking and opening the front door
Clearing a path to the patient, both inside and outside - leave room for the ambulance in the driveway if possible.
