CALL 911 – if you have a medical emergency, or you are unsure of where to go. Don't drive to the hospital if you have severe chest pain, heavy bleeding, feel like you may faint, have impaired vision, or feel like you may be having a heart attack or stroke.
An ambulance is much safer, especially if you are having a heart attack. An emergency medical technician (EMT) provides medical care on the way to the hospital and they're trained to stabilize the patient before they get to the emergency room.
