Who will treat me in emergency medical care?

Emergency medical care is prehospital care rendered by a variety of EMS professionals and first responders.

Emergency medical care and related medical services are part of the health care system. The emergency medical services encompass units, distributed across various tiers, with carefully defined tasks and levels of required professional qualification. The emergency response centre will assess the emergency call and judge which tier of emergency medical response to dispatch. All units assigned to emergency medical services are not ambulances for the transportation of patients; in some cases they only transport emergency medical personnel.

The emergency medical services do not provide non-urgent assistance, nor will they carry patients home.
