T
he McCandless-Franklin Park Ambulance Authority offers medical service to Franklin Park residents 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. Highly trained, state-certified paramedics and emergency medical technicians are prepared at a moments notice to administer the very best emergency care possible to you and your loved ones when the need arises.

Many people believe that in an emergency help begins when the ambulance arrives on the scene. However, in reality, YOU are the first step in the emergency medical system.

Each of you has at least one emergency lifesaving device in your home...YOUR TELEPHONE. You can learn to use it in just a few minutes. Write down this telephone number 911. This is the number you should call for help in a medical emergency. Now, put the number by your phone. This is very important for every person in your family to know. When you need help fast, your phone and the correct emergency telephone number can be a real life saver, and making the right call can save time and lives.

One call connects you to the McCandless-Franklin Park Ambulance team, paramedics, emergency medical technician and dispatchers, who are especially trained to help people who are hurt or sick. EMS stands for emergency medical services.
