Preparing for EMS

Help EMS help you.

  • Display your address prominently on the curb and/or on your house to help crews find the correct address quickly.
  • For help getting highly visible address markers, contact the K-State Extension office HERE or call them at 785-628-9430.
  • Display your address near the fridge or telephone in the case that someone needs to call 9-1-1 for you. 
  • The questions asked by 9-1-1 dispatchers, Paramedics, and EMT's are important and designed to help you, please answer all honestly.

Know where these items are located.

  • A list or location of your current medications and medical conditions.
  • Emergency contact information.
  • Advanced directives, Do Not Resuscitate (DNR), Durable power of attorney for health care decisions (DPOH-HCD), and living wills.
