MEDICAL EMERGENCY

When emergency treatment is needed because of sudden illness, serious injuries due to traffic accident, gas poisoning, serious burns etc., call 119 and an ambulance will be sent. However, an ambulance will not be sent when the injury or illness is slight. In this case, a taxi or car should be used to get to the hospital.
