Things You Will Be Asked

These first few questions are our entry questions. Please remain on the line with us so we can gather information that will be helpful in making sure that we have the proper help coming to you. However, please know that help is on the way during the question process. Our call-takers take your call, gather information from the first three questions, and send the call over to our medical and fire dispatcher at which time an ambulance and fire department is dispatched to your emergency. Note: Not all Fire Departments respond to medical calls.
