In case of medical emergency, I understand that my child will be transported to an appropriate medical facility by the local emergency unit for treatment if the local emergency resources (police, rescue squad, etc.) deem it necessary. I understand that my child will be transported at my expense. It is understood that in some medical situations, the staff will need to contact the local emergency resource before informing me, my child’s physician, and/or any other adult acting on my behalf.
