How To Contact A Paramedic

John Donaghy (Paramedic) gives expert video advice on: How do I contact a paramedic?

How do I contact a paramedic?

To contact the paramedic's just dial the emergency telephone number. In the case of the UK population, the number to dial is 999, and for US citizens, it is 911. Dialling the UK Emergency number 999 allows you to connect to the switch board, and then you need to choose the required service. There are different types of emergency services available to you such as fire, police, ambulance and coast guard. Choosing the ambulance service hooks you to the ambulance control room. Also, medical help or assistance is provided to you through the phone until the ambulance reaches the scene.
