Important information that could save your life in Charlottesville

This was brought to my attention by Janice Dean in response to my post about drinking at the University of Virginia. She contributed this as a comment earlier today, and this is important information so I want to make sure you see it:

- There are no charges for services provided by the Charlottesville/Albemarle Rescue Squad.
- Parents will only be notified if student is under 18 or if they might not make it.
- Police will respond to a 911 call, but only to ensure safety, not to report or arrest anyone.
- Bringing a friend to the hospital will not put you at risk for punishment if you are underage. It is better to come in so the doctors know exactly what happened; they will be better able to treat your friend!
