When calling an ambulance, determine the following:
- nature of the problem
- is the victim conscious or unconscious?
- is the victim breathing or not?
First Aid For Emergencies
Follow these steps until medical help arrives. These tips do not take the place of first aid training.
9-1-1 Operators are trained to give first aid and CPR instructions over the phone until emergency personnel arrive at your location.
NOTE: Keep a first aid kit where anyone can find it easily. Store it out of children’s reach and renew supplies regularly.
