If you’re having a medical emergency, make it easier for the paramedics to help you…By making sure they can find you! For example, if you get stung by a bee in your backyard, and you’re having trouble breathing – get someone to call 911. Then go out into your driveway. Medical experts say that if you’re having a life-threatening issue, every second counts. And you don’t want the paramedics wasting time wondering if they’ve got the right house, pounding on your front door, or trying to figure out how to get through the gate into your backyard.
