Save Triple Zero (000) for medical emergencies

Nationally, ambulance services are experiencing increased pressure this cold and flu season. Ambulance services across the country have joined forces for the Council of Ambulance Authorities’ (CAA) nationwide campaign, urging community members to save Triple Zero (000) for medical emergencies.

The ACT Ambulance Service is committed to responding to all calls for medical emergencies but urge the community to consider if your emergency requires an Ambulance to be dispatched.

If you are not experiencing a medical emergency, please seek out alternatives like a GP, a pharmacist or a registered nurse available 24 hours a day at HealthDirect on 1800 022 222.
