When should I call 911?
Dial 911 in the event of an emergency only! When someone is badly hurt or suddenly sick and in danger, call 911 immediately. Call when someone’s life is threatened, when someone faints or collapses, has persistent chest pain or difficulty breathing or is badly injured. Call if the victim needs the skills or equipment of emergency personnel. Call if moving the victims yourself could cause further injury. If unsure, call 911.
