Most often, people call EMS when they have had an accident or are experiencing a medical emergency. Emergencies might include a heart attack, difficulty breathing, falls, accidents, drowning, cardiac arrest, stroke, drug overdose, and acute illnesses. EMS may provide both basic and advanced medical care at the scene of an emergency and en route to a hospital.
