Our immediate response to someone in a medical crisis is to call 911. This nationwide emergency response system has helped save countless lives since its inception, linking callers to emergency responders on the other end of the line.

The simple, 3-digit number connects us to a network that routes us to the help that is needed, saving us from having to search for the phone number of the nearest hospital, police department or fire department during our time of need.
