In brief: Consider 911

Asthma is a common disease, but it does kill over 3, 000 people in the us every year. If a person does not have an inhaler and is very short of breath, they should be evaluated.
Many urgent cares, clinics, and all emergency departments have breathing medications. If symptoms are severe, however, they should go to the er to make sure they don't need additional tests, therapies.
