Immediately call 911 and tell the dispatcher about the person who needs attention:
- Approximate age
- Nature of injury or illness
- Pertinent medical history (if known)
- Precise location
Do not move an injured person — unless there is immediate danger of further harm — until emergency medical personnel arrive.
- Keep the person warm.
- If possible, designate someone to direct emergency responders from the approach to the victim.
- If appropriately trained, give first aid until emergency medical personnel arrive and take over care of the victim.
