FIRST AID
What is First Aid?

Initial help given to a person who is sick or injured is called first aid.


STEP ONE:

  • Evaluate the situation.

  • Look for dangers to yourself and to the victim. You cannot help the victim by putting yourself at risk. If assisting COVID-19 positive or suspected victim, Don PPE (Wear a face mask, preferably N95 respiratory. Recommend gloves, gown, and face shield, if available) and limit the number of people around the victim. Non-essential people should be standing at least 6 feet away from the victim.

  • Make the area safe for yourself and the victim


STEP TWO:

  • Call 911 Emergency medical services (EMS). Be prepared to give the operator your location

  • Provide emergency aid

  • Get help from others

  • Reminder: always use gloves if available and use universal precautions
