First Aid Tidbits


FIRST AID TIDBITS

CALL FOR
HELP

Call authorities or emergency service immediately if you believe someone to be seriously injured.

MAINTAIN COMPOSURE

Remember to stay calm and try to be reasoning; let the person know that help is on its way & that everything will be alright.

DETERMINE RESPONSIVENESS

If a person is unconscious, try to rouse them by gently tickling their bare hands and feet or by speaking to them. If they do not respond to activity determine whether they are breathing.

MAKE SURE THE PERSON IS WARM

As you wait for medical help, drape a towel or a blanket over the person if you have one; you can also remove some of your own clothing and use it as a cover until medical help arrives.
