  • Sudden numbness in your face, arms or legs
  • Sudden change in vision
  • Serious head, neck or back injury
  • Difficulty breathing
  • Bleeding that won't stop
  • Chest pain or pressure
  • Severe burn
  • Seizure or fainting
  • Poisoning


If you are experiencing a medical emergency, please call 9-1-1 immediately.
