The GEMS EMS Network is open to all EMS providers (ambulance services) that meet GEMS criteria. When you call the emergency telephone number - 0800 44 4367- the Emergency Medical Evacuation Dispatch (EMED) Centre will receive the call and assign an EMS provider to the incident. The EMED Centre can be contacted 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

The procedure you should follow is:
1. Dial 0800 44 4367 to contact the EMED Centre.

4. Provide a brief description of what has happened and how serious the situation is:
4.1 Age of the patient
4.2 Sex of the patient (Male/Female)
4.3 Is the patient breathing? (Yes/No)
4.4 Is the patient conscious? (Yes/No)
4.5 Brief details on the current condition of the patient
5. Confirm the patient's medical aid number and patient details.

Further important points:
Please ensure that all your registered dependants are aware of this service. Inform your child's school that he/she is a member
