    This is nothing to mess around with. Call 911. It is the fastest way to get treatment. You and your family may think you can just drive to the hospital just as fast. Maybe. But EMSt will assess you, begin treatment, contact the hospital on the way, and get you seen immediately once you get to the hospital..

    Yes that is true but where my mother lived EMS was all volunteers we waited 30 mins and took her ourselves my nieces stayed at the house waiting for my father and EMS took over an hour to show. Sometimes you have to make a decision.
