Make the Right Call
When you call 9-1-1 for a medical emergency, time is of the essence for Brunswick County’s EMS team. That is why it is important to call only in emergencies and look for other options when a health issue does not require immediate attention.
Call 9-1-1 when an injury or illness could cost someone’s life or ability to function without rapid emergency medical intervention. If you are not sure if you need urgent or emergency care, go to the closest emergency room or call 9-1-1.
Here are examples of some symptoms or injuries that require emergency medical attention:
- Chest pain or pressure
- Severe blood loss
- Limb loss
- Head, neck, or back injury
- Difficulty breathing
- Convulsions or seizures
Brunswick County EMS works closely with the 9-1-1 call center, local hospitals, and other responders to ensure ambulances are available when these medical emergencies happen. But when ambulances are tied up with non-emergency calls, this becomes more challenging.
Here are options you can use for a non-emergency health issue:
- Contact your doctor for an appointment or go to an urgent care clinic
- Use alternate transportation to go to a hospital emergency room
- Self-care for minor, not urgent needs at home when possible
