St. Maarten EMS presents adjusted posters

POSTED: 06/22/12 2:49 PM

St. Maarten – Head of the Ambulance Department Cylred Richardson and staff of St. Maarten EMS presented Minister of Public Health Social Development & Labor, Cornelius De Weever with the adjusted Call 912 posters and brochures on Tuesday as part of the celebration of EMS Week. The week of activities ends today.
“It is very important for the community of St. Maarten to call 912 instead of 911 in a medical emergency. If you call 911 you will get the Police Department, and they are not collecting the same information we need at the Ambulance Department with medical emergencies,” Richardson said.
The poster has some handy information such as when to call 912 for an ambulance, information needed when calling 912 and what you can do until the ambulance team arrives.
“When every second counts to save someone’s life it is extremely important to know to call 912. I am looking forward for this campaign to continue year round to ensure that the entire population of St. Maarten knows to call 912 in case of emergencies,” de Weever said.
