The call to 118

The person in charge of calling 118 must try to make an assessment of the environment in which they find themselves. For example, in the event of an accident, it is important to understand if the injured person was hit or lost control of the car on his own, if other people are involved, if the cause of the accident was an illness. The "environmental" assessment also includes any details of the place where you are, for example if there are problems of access or traffic, so as to allow the sending of adequate emergency vehicles (medical car, ambulances or rescue helicopter) . Together with a purely environmental assessment, those who turn to 118 are asked to also provide a "health" assessment, that is, if the people involved are unconscious or very suffering, if they breathe and so on.
