Series will people deal with many common emergencies.
Austin-Travis County EMS has released the first in a series of public education videos and articles entitled “What to do When”. This series is intended to inform the public about the actions that take place behind the scenes at EMS, and help people deal with many of the common emergencies that ATCEMS responds to.
The video series is available for viewing on all ATCEMS social media channels. In the first episode, the entire process of actually receiving, dispatching and providing initial medical first aid instructions during a 911 call is covered. Viewers will learn about many of the simultaneous processes that are actually taking place while a caller is on the line with a 911 ATCEMS Communications Medic.
Future episodes and articles will educate viewers about the initial steps they can take in many common emergency calls. For example, topics will include steps to take when you are involved in a vehicle collision, witnessing someone having a seizure, or suffering a burn, among many other topics.
We invite you to view the series and share this valuable information with friends, family and colleagues.
