"It is summer and accidents, incidents and illnesses will happen. The main thing is to know when and how to get help," says Henry County Hospital Emergency Department Director Kris Manning, RN.
"Number one," she stresses, "If you have chest pain seek help immediately. Many people overdo it in the name of fun or yard work. Call 911 because you will be treated as soon as Emergency Medical Services arrive on the scene."
However, when it comes to other situations, knowing where to get help is just as important. Kris offers the following suggestions:
