In an Emergency Call 911 Immediately

In an emergency, seconds count. When police, fire or medical incidents occur, call 911 immediately. Trained emergency call takers will provide you with the information and assistance you need.

An “In Case of Emergency” information sheet provides important medical details for paramedics and hospital staff should the need arise. These sheets are easy to read and provide critical details to healthcare providers at a time when communication may be hindered due to illness or language barriers.

If you live alone, this information sheet is essential for your well being.

We recommend posting this information sheet somewhere handy, like the front of your refrigerator.
The EMS Staff look here first.

For your convenience, you may fill out this sheet on your computer before printing. It is available in several languages. Where possible, though it should be filled out in English (or French in applicable areas) so that medical professionals can understand the information you have written.
