|General Response Guidelines|
For all life/property threatening emergencies dial *46. When calling emergency personnel, stay on the line until all requested information is provided. Hang up only after you have been told.
As quickly as possible, people at the scene of an emergency must determine the basic incident facts (who, what, when, where, and how) and get this information to Plans, Training Mobilization and Security (PTMS). PTMS assesses the situation and if warranted will contact the hospital Command Group. Together they will assess the seriousness of the event and decide whether to activate the Medical Operations Center (MOC).
