OUR AMBULANCE

#526

Our current ambulance, which we purchased back in 2013, is equipped with the most up-to-date resources and communications to provide emergency pre-hospital medical care. On board, we have a vital signs monitor, an automatic CPR machine, defibrillator, oxygen, and other equipment that is necessary to save lives.

WHAT TO KNOW BEFORE WE ARRIVE:

Before We Arrive...

  • If at night, turn on an outside porch light. If possible, send someone to the front lawn with a flashlight to signal the ambulance driver.

  • Clear a path inside your home. Move all furniture or TV's out of the way if possible.

  • Place dogs or cats in a separate room and close the door.

  • Gather all medication the patient has been subscribed.

  • Do not give the patient anything to eat or drink.

  • Keep talking to the patient.

Display Your Street Address...

  • If you call for help, we need to find our house easily. Please help us by making sure your house number is easily seen from the street and visible at night. We can't help you if we can't find you.

What To Do If You Have An EMERGENCY...

  • Dial 9-1-1

  • Say, "This is an emergency. I need an ambulance because..."

  • Give the location, age and symptom of the patient. Also include your own name and phone number.

  • Follow the instructions of the dispatcher.

  • Stay with the patient until EMS arrives.

Plan For An EMERGENCY...

  • Record family medical information on a card and keep it close to the telephone in case of an emergency. This should include:

  • Name

  • Date of Birth

  • Drug Allergies

  • Medical History

  • Current Medications

If You Are Alone, We Also Recommend The Following...

  • The purchase of a Medical Alert device for use in notifying Emergency personnel of the incident.
