What would happen to my son if 911 were called for me?

I'm a stay at home mother with a condition that, while it hasn't happened yet, could ostensibly become an emergency at some point. It occurred to me that I have no idea what would happen to my two year old son if I needed to be taken to the hospital via ambulance. Obviously, if his father could be reached, he would take care of him - but he's often out of reach for hours at a time.
It also occurred to me that household accidents must happen to parents all the time, what happens with the young children in these situations if another family member can't be reached? Would they be taken to the hospital as well? Who would watch them?
