What do I do in an emergency?

Emergency Room

If you have a medical emergency, you should go immediately to the Peterborough Hospital Emergency Room. A doctor will care for you at any time of day.

9-1-1: Police, Fire, Ambulance

Police-womanIf you have a life-threatening emergency and cannot get to the hospital, dial 9-1-1 from any telephone. If you cannot speak English, the 9-1-1 operator can get an interpreter.

An operator will send an ambulance to take you to the hospital. You will need to pay a fee for the ambulance. It can be billed for you to pay later.

Poison

If the emergency involves poison, you can call the Ontario Poison Centre for advice.
