Paramedics know...: The paramedics know what to do, and know which hospital ER's are accepting patients. The paramedics can start treatment for a possible heart attack, if that is suspected. Family members on the scene can drive carefully, at a normal speed, to the hospital and wait for information, which comes after the ER doctor has evaluated the patient.
