A MESSAGE FROM THE HEALTH & SAFETY COMMITTEE
In an emergency, dial 911 or your local emergency number immediately.
An emergency is any situation that requires immediate assistance from the police, fire department or ambulance. Examples include:
A crime, especially if in progress
A car crash, especially if someone is injured
A medical emergency, especially for symptoms that require immediate medical attention
If you’re not sure whether the situation is a true emergency, officials recommend calling 911 and letting the call-taker determine whether you need emergency help.
One more note …. Don’t assume someone else made the call ……. Dial 911 it’s that easy.
