Aiding the Injured

If you find someone who is injured, administer first aid as best you can and seek medical attention for them. Below are some emergency first aid tips:

  • Check for injuries. Do not attempt to move those who are seriously injured unless they are in immediate danger of death or further injury. If you must move an unconscious person, first stabilize the neck and back, then call for help immediately.
  • If the victim is not breathing, carefully position the victim for artificial respiration, clear the airway and begin mouth-to-mouth resuscitation.
  • Never try to feed liquids to an unconscious person.
