If we witness an accident or an emergency, we all have a duty to come to the aid of others in distress.
In case of an accident:
- Find out what has happened and especially whether hazards are still present. Do not endanger yourself or others.
- Rescue those in danger and prevent further accidents.
- Give first aid, if necessary.
- Call the emergency number 112 and follow the dispatcher’s instructions.
- Direct emergency personnel to the scene with the help of others,
Emergency first aid
