Emergency Medical Care
Paramedics are trained professionals who give emergency medical care in the field and at accident sites. In most communities, you can call for a paramedic by dialing the same 911 emergency telephone number you would use for the police or fire department.

Emergency Rooms. Hospitals also have emergency rooms for walk-in assistance. In case of emergency, it is wise to carry vital health care information--information on drug allergies, medical history, etc.--in your wallet or purse. Some people even wear special bracelets or necklaces that carry critical emergency health information.
