- A medical emergency is a serious medical condition that results from injury, sickness or mental illness. If your child has a medical emergency, call 911 or go to the emergency room at the nearest hospital right away.
- It is important to maintain emergency information for your child in the event of an emergency. Download a copy and ask the primary care provider (PCP) to fill it out and sign it.
- Create an Emergency Response Plan for your child with their PCP, specialty health care, school, and home care providers. Take this plan with you on an emergency room visit and give to emergency medical services (EMS) providers.
- Make sure emergency service providers (EMS) in your community know about that your child has a condition. Then, in an emergency, EMS providers will be more familiar with the health needs of your child.
- Be prepared for a disaster emergency before it happens. Make a Disaster Supplies Kit for your child and your family.
