Heart Attack Facts

If you think you are having a heart attack, call ‘000’ now

It’s OK to Call

If you think you could be having a heart attack, call Triple Zero (000)* immediately. Because the longer you wait, the more your heart muscle dies. Treatment starts the minute you call, and if the operator thinks you need an ambulance, they will send one.

Remember, it’s OK if it’s a false alarm – that’s the best thing that could happen.
*If calling Triple Zero (000) does not work on your mobile phone, try 112.

If you have a hearing or speech impairment you can contact an ambulance on 106 directly through a TTY (also known as a teletypewriter or textphone). For further information visit National Relay Service (NRS).
