When to Call 911?  

When an emergency threatens a person's life, limbs or sense organs – such as heart attacks, strokes, breathing problems, broken bones, head and neck injuries, cuts with severe bleeding, and eye injuries – call 911 immediately.  

Be prepared to provide the condition of the person experiencing the medical emergency, and location of the person for the ambulance staff to arrive.  

It is important to have a list of medications being taken by the patient, if possible, to assist the first responders in assessing the medical situation.
