An ambulance provides transport to a hospital and enables emergency medical technicians (EMTs) to begin medical treatment and extend it through the ride to the medical center. If you are not sure if you need an ambulance, it is better to call 911 and they will assist you directly. An ambulance should always be called under the following circumstances:

1.       A person’s condition is potentially life-threatening. Chest pains, difficulty breathing, sudden confusion or an altered mental status. These symptoms could be signs of heart attack, stroke, or a related condition.
2.        Someone is choking and needs the Heimlich maneuver or back blows, or his or her heart has stopped and the person requires CPR. Call 911 prior to performing CPR to get the ambulance moving; the dispatcher can also assist the caller with life-saving procedures.
3.        When moving the patient may further injure the individual, such as in motor vehicle accidents, falls, or other trauma.
4.        You are unable to get yourself or the patient to the ER due to fall, injury, or weakness. If you are too weak to get up on your own or are unsteady on your feet, call 911.

Sometimes you may be tempted to just ask a friend to take you to the ER. Remember, an ambulance has immediate access to the ER. Going to the ER on your own could result in an unnecessary wait and delayed treatment.
  In New Canaan, there is no charge for using the ambulance.
The bottom line? When in doubt, call 911!

Happy Birthday!
