OUR AIM

It is our aim to educate and inform all members of the public in the UK on the correct and proper use of the 999 system.

 

Use It...

...don't ABUSE it! You will receive an emergency vehicle with a fully qualified member of staff to help deal with your emergency. If you abuse the 999 system, you could put other lives at risk and deprive someone who really needs us of emergence assistance.

AMBULANCE

 
  • Before you phone, make a note of the location and telephone number you are calling from.
  • The first person you speak to will be the Emergency Services operator who will ask you which Emergency Service you require.
  • Try to remain calm and speak clearly. The slower you speak the less chance there will be of a mistake.
  • The Emergency Services operator will put you through to the required service.
  • You will be asked to provide details of the location and telephone number. This will be used if the telephone call is disconnected and we need to contact you.
  • You will then be asked for the nature of the incident eg: Road Accident, how many casualties are involved and the general nature of the injuries.
  • Do NOT hang up until you are told to do so
  • You should note that an ambulance will be dispatched as soon as we have the relevant information
  • If somebody is seriously injured or very ill, the ambulance controller will offer to assist you in giving first aid until the ambulance arrives.

    REMEMBER
  • Don't panic, keep a look out for the ambulance as the address or location may not be obvious
  • If you are at home and it is dark, then put some lights on so that the house can be seen.
