Have you come across an incident?

Follow the below point and you could help save someone life...

1

SAFETY FIRST

Before doing anything else you should make sure that the area of the incident is safe.

  • Stop the traffic in both directions, removing the hazard from the casualty (2 way road)
  • If you can't stop the traffic, drag the casualty to a safe place (if safe for you)
2

Call for help

Get someone to call 999 or 112 as soon as possible, keep calm and follow the operators instructions.

  • Where are you?
  • What road are you on?
  • Where are you approaching & where were you last?
3

Treat the casualties

If there is more than one casualty, decide who gets treated first (if you don't have enough rescuers)

Tips:

  • Quietest ones first
  • Breathing and Bleeding
  • Breaks and Burns
4

Helmet Removal?

It needs to come off if the casualty is:

  • Unconscious
  • Being Sick
  • Feels Sick

Follow your training! (reminder video)

5

CPR?

Follow the plan:

IS THE CASUALTY UNCONSCIOUS?

  1. If yes, SHOUT FOR HELP!

OPEN THE AIRWAY

  1. Is the casualty breathing normally?
  2. If not, call 999 or 112 if not done so already

START CHEST COMPRESSIONS

  1. Kneel next to the person
  2. Place the heel of one hand in the centre of their chest. Place your other hand on top of the first. Interlock your fingers.
  3. With arms straight use the heel of your hand to push down 5–6cm and release.
  4. The correct rate is 100 to 120 chest compressions per minute.
  5. Give 30 chest compressions.

RESCUE BREATHS

  1. Open the airway again and pinch the soft part of the person’s nose closed.
  2. Take a normal breath, make a seal around their mouth and breathe out steadily.
  3. The casualties chest should rise and fall.
  4. Keeping the casualties head back and the chin lifted, take your mouth away, take another normal breath and give a second rescue breath.
  5. The two breaths should take no longer than five seconds.
  6. Repeat 30 compressions and 2 rescue breaths.

KEEP GOING UNTIL

  • professional help arrives and takes over,
  • the person starts to show signs of regaining consciousness, such as coughing, opening their eyes, speaking, or moving purposefully AND starts to breathe normally,
  • or you become exhausted. (Get someone else to take over)

If you’d rather not give rescue breaths then deliver "Hands Only CPR". That’s better than doing nothing.
