EMS reports and records contain patient and medical information that is protected by the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA). EMS reports can be released to the patient who received treatment, the legal guardian of a patient, or a party holding a Consent to Release Form signed by the patient. If records are being released with the consent of the patient, the patent's government issued identification must also be presented along with the signed form.

Yes, 911 can be called from any phone. When calling from a cellular phone, be sure to know your location or at least the closest cross streets. Immediately let the dispatcher know you are calling from a cell phone and give your phone number and location.
A crosswalk, marked or unmarked, is any part of the roadway at an intersection within the connections of the lateral lines of the sidewalks.
If a sidewalk is present and accessible, you must use it. If no sidewalk is present, you should walk on the left side of the roadway or on the shoulder going against traffic.
In Denton, people on bicycles are allowed to ride on the sidewalk except in certain areas downtown. Riding on the sidewalk, while allowed in most of Denton, is not encouraged as it creates many conflict points with pedestrians.
