Michigan Association of Ambulance Services Advises don't hesitate to call 911 if you need help.
(Info269) - If you are experiencing chest pain, shortness of breath, or other serious life threatening symptoms please call 911. Individuals have been reluctant to call 911 during the COVID-19 epidemic for fear of burdening the system or catching COVID-19. M.A.A.S. wants you to know that medical services are readily available.
“We don’t want to see people develop a permanent medical disability or die needlessly due to fear of COVID or burdening the medical system,” said Jack Fisher, MAAS president and executive director of Medic 1 Ambulance in Berrien County. “Every minute counts in a medical emergency and people should still call for help, even during this pandemic.”
