Do not move the patient unless it is unsafe for them to stay in the area.

Apply direct pressure to stop bleeding, if unresponsive and not breathing normally start chest compressions and use an Automated External Defibrillator (AED). Avoid body fluids and be sure to wash your hands or exposed areas of your body with soap and water after rendering care.

Have someone wait for emergency personnel to direct them to the person in need of medical aid.
