About Early Heart Attack Care and Acute Coronary Syndrome
When to Call 9-1-1
When a Heart Attack or Acute Coronary Syndrome happens - it is an absolute medical emergency. If you are experiencing symptoms or have a concern that you may be experiencing a Heart Attack or ACS, call 9-1-1 immediately.
Early activation of Emergency Medical Services (EMS) is vital to decreasing heart damage. EMS teams are able to provide important care before you arrive at the hospital, working to save your life.
