When to Call 911

By Vice President Chris Schoon
February 24, 2021

Calling 911?
Do you know if it is an emergency?
Chest pain with radiation to an arm, back or jaw? Call 911.
The pain just doesn’t go away. Call 911.

When it comes to a heart attack, time is heart muscle. That is why calling early is so important. The crew of the responding ambulance can perform an EKG on the spot and transmit it to the hospital getting immediate results. The Patient has the right to turn us away and refuse treatment if they are mentally competent and not impaired by drugs or alcohol. So call and let the EMS check you out.

That headache that is the worst you have ever had? The sudden blurred vision/loss of vision? Weakness or paralysis on one side of the body? Call 911.
Take note of the time symptoms began. There is a new mnemonic for remembering stroke symptoms.
B.E. F.A.S.T.

Balance – dizziness, loss of coordination
Eyes- trouble seeing out of one or both eyes
Face- drooping on one side, uneven smile
Arms- weakness/unable to raise arms
Speech- slurred speech. Unable to find words, cannot repeat a simple phrase
Time – to call 911 right away. Time is brain tissue
Injuries with uncontrolled bleeding, dislocations/broken bones. Call 911.
Don’t be afraid of going to your health maintenance appointments. Diabetes and heart disease can be managed with your doctor. Putting off these check- up can result in a call to 911.
The Volunteers at the Aquia Harbour Volunteer Rescue Squad are here to serve you and the rest of the Stafford Count community. Meet us at www.ahvrs.org

We also want to congratulate Hailey Brown and Jonathan Krob, newly released as an EMT-B, Attendant in Charge (AIC) and Gwen Vaughan and Amanda Woods released as new drivers. Great Job! see you on the calls!
