Know an Emergency
Remember, it's an emergency vehicle, not a taxi. Save Emergency Vehicles for emergencies.
When ambulances are called for non-emergency situations it can prevent them from being able to respond to a life threatening emergency. Think about whether, or not, you need an ambulance for your situation. Help make sure an advanced life support ambulance is available when you, or someone else, has a life threatening emergency.
Make the right call If it is potentially life threatening, or you are in doubt, don't guess, call 911.
