Acute Alcohol Poisoning

If someone under the influence of alcohol exhibits ONE or more of these behaviors…Call 911!

  • Repeated vomiting;
  • Mental confusion or stupor;
  • Unconscious, "passed out" or semi-conscious and cannot be awakened;
  • Vomiting while "sleeping" or passed out; not waking up after vomiting;
  • Seizures;
  • Slow or irregular breathing;

Do not leave the person alone.
A person who has passed out may die. Turn the person on her/his side to prevent choking in case of vomiting.
