Medical Emergencies Response Guide

  • Call UD Police and advise the dispatcher of your location and the nature of the victim's illness or injury.
  • Unless trained, do not attempt to render any first aid before medical assistance arrives.  Depending on the circumstances, the dispatcher may provide you with basic medical instructions from a predetermined protocol.
  • Do not attempt to move a victim of an auto accident or other trauma such as a fall.
  • Comfort the victim and assure them help is on the way.
  • Don't allow yourself to be exposed to chemicals, electric shock, fire, blood, or other body fluids.  Wear protective equipment or wait for professional assistance.
  • Remain after help arrives to provide needed information.
  • If you suspect that you have been exposed to infectious disease in any form while assisting the victim, seek medical attention as soon as possible.
