Always Be Prepared

During a Medical Emergency

Please  open doors, turn on outside lights if it is evening and stay as calm as possible while waiting for help to arrive.  When emergency medical responders arrive on the scene, be prepared to provide relevant information about the situation including things like:

  • What happened before they arrived?
  • What physical or mental health conditions does the patient currently manage?
  • List of medications the patient takes
  • Insurance Card
