TIPS FROM WELLINGTON FREE AMBULANCE PARAMEDICS
Meet the paramedics outside your home so they can easily find your property.
Take a torch to guide them up the path to your house.
Make sure your house number is visible and large enough to read.
Clear the path of overhanging plant growth and moss.
Consider outside lighting and turn on lights (including inside the house) while awaiting an ambulance.
Put family pets in another room from the patient.
Locate any medications the patient takes to show paramedics.
Give the 111 operator as many details as possible about how to find your property if it is difficult to find.
