Use of an ambulance

Accessing the right emergency services at the right time is important in saving lives. Some migrant communities do not call for an ambulance because they do not know how to. Some are worried about what will happen to them in the ambulance, how much it will cost or that they will not be understood if they do not speak English well.

This video aims to make sure everyone in the community has equal access to an ambulance in their time of need and is aware of how they work and what to expect when paramedics arrive.
