First Aid: Follow the Three C’s
Follow the Three Cs
If you find yourself in an emergency situation that requires quick action, follow the three Cs: Check, Call and Care.
First, survey the scene for any possible hazards. If the area appears safe, check the victim for life-threatening conditions such as:
- Labored or obstructed breathing
- Severe bleeding
- Loss of circulation
After checking the victim, call 911. Remain calm, and be prepared to give a description of the situation as well as the exact location where responders are needed.
Also, contact local site security and emergency response at: [insert number].
Based on the level of training you have and the equipment and supplies available, provide what care you can until medical personnel arrive. Remember, do not attempt CPR or other techniques without the proper training.
