Information for International Attendees
Emergencies

Always call 911 when someone's health or safety is at risk. When a life is at stake, 911 is the fastest way to get the help you need. Medical help arrives when the ambulance arrives. In the meantime, Calgary 9-1-1 can provide life saving instructions. NEVER try to drive a very sick or injured person to the hospital thinking it will be faster than waiting for an ambulance. In a true emergency, dial 911 and stay on the phone. We need to ask a few questions so we can send you the right help.
