  • Assess the Scene: Ensure your safety and the safety of others before assisting anyone. Check for hazards and assess the situation before providing aid.
  • Call for Help: If needed, call emergency services immediately. Time is crucial in emergencies, so don’t hesitate to seek professional assistance.
  • ABCs: Check the person’s Airway, Breathing, and Circulation. Ensure their airway is clear, check for breathing, and assess circulation by checking for a pulse.
