Keep Your Head
Know what to do in an emergency
One of the hardest things to do in a medical emergency is to stay calm. But that's what you must do to help an injured person. Knowing what to do is crucial.
First, the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center says call for help. Your area probably has 911 emergency service. Describe the situation calmly and clearly to the dispatcher, making sure to give your exact location. Never hang up until the dispatcher ends the call.
In addition, never move an accident victim unless there is immediate danger, such as fire. And never give the injured person anything to drink or eat while waiting for emergency workers to arrive. If there is no pulse, you should give CPR, which is taught by the Red Cross and other groups in your area.
