EMT Refresher: When to make the call to Police/Coroner

As an EMT or Paramedic you arrive at a call that isn't your typical physical trauma or illness. There are times when an EMT or Paramedic will need to call law enforcement or medical examiner/coroners office. You will be surprised at the amount of times that both have had to be called. At times both will have to be called at the same time.

The reason an EMT or Paramedic should call is:
Homicide
Suicide
Violent Death
Crash related deaths
Sudden Infant Death (SIDS)
Dead On Arrival
