Should I Call 911 Or Go To Urgent Care?

When in doubt, call 911 for all medical emergencies.

The services provided by each medical practitioner in the community may vary. Your urgent care of choice will be able to provide you with information about their available services, including guidance on when it is better to call 911.

What Happens When I Call 911?

These trained professionals will answer your call, and ask you a series of questions. Your answers help the Dispatcher to route the correct emergency resources to your emergency.

Each emergency is unique, and may require support from the local EMS (ambulance), fire department, or law enforcement agency (local Police, Sheriff, State Police). These emergency responders bring a unique skill-set, and will work in concert to address your emergency.

What Questions Will The 911 Dispatcher Ask?

When you call 911, the call-taker will ask a series of scripted questions. These questions will help the call-taker understand your location, the nature of your emergency, and which services to send to assist you (EMS, law enforcement, fire department, etc.). If you experience an emergency, you may feel frustrated by these questions, or may feel these questions are consuming valuable time. Please be patient; your answers help us to arrive prepared to help you!

What Can I Do While I Am Waiting For the Ambulance to Arrive?

Remain calm, and follow the instructions of the 911 call-taker. The call-taker may offer emergency medical instructions while help is en-route to your location.

We understand that emergencies are stressful. While experiencing the stress of an emergency it is common to feel as though time has slowed down; everything seems to take longer than normal. Be aware of this phenomenon, and do not become frustrated.

How Can I Prepare For An Emergency?

Before you experience an emergency, here are a few tips to help you prepare:

  • We will struggle to find your home if your house number is not visible. Make sure your house number is easily spotted from the road.
  • You can prepare a list of your current and past medical conditions, all medications you currently take, and any allergies that you have. 
  • If you experience an emergency and call 911, take a moment to contain any pets. Your pets will sense your anxiety, and may interpret that anxiety to be a result of our presence. Containing your pet will help to ensure our safety and theirs.
  • Emergencies come in many types and sizes – not all are medical in nature. Be prepared for anything.
