Emergency 9-1-1Unknown - 2009
Dialing 9-1-1 is simple in itself, but few people are truly ready for a siren-filled ride to the emergency room. This program will help viewers prepare for such a crisis, providing detailed information on when to call 9-1-1, how best to speak with the dispatcher, what to do while waiting for an ambulance, and what to expect upon arrival at the ER. Expert guests include Emergency Medical Services specialist Andrew Brave and Dr. Leigh Vinocur of the American College of Emergency Physicians. The program also reenacts a real-world situation in which an elderly man fell in his home and was unable to reach a telephone. Viewers will gain a better understanding of how seniors and other vulnerable individuals should prepare for medical emergencies.
