Call 9-1-1 of you are having a medical emergency

What happens when you call 9-1-1?

According to a dispatch professional that Chief Sean Grinnell spoke to,

 

"We are EMD and EFD certified to provide crews with specific information. In addition, we help callers prepare for crews and provide instructions to care for the patient until help arrives. We also put the callers mind at ease while they are waiting."

The website 911.gov contains information about what happens when you call or text 911 along with some useful tips. From the site:

Many 911 call centers follow protocols that guide callers through a sequence of questions to quickly obtain information necessary for dispatching the right responders to the right location. Call-takers may also provide instructions about what to do until help arrives.
