You're the first person to arrive at an incident where people are badly injured. You’ve switched on your hazard lights and checked all engines are stopped. What else should you do?

A Make sure that an ambulance is called for

If you’re the first to arrive at a crash scene the first concerns are the risk of further collision and fire. Ensuring that vehicle engines are switched off will reduce the risk of fire. Use hazard warning lights so that other traffic knows there’s a need for caution. Make sure the emergency services are contacted, don’t assume this has already been done.

As the first person to arrive at an incident where people are badly injured, it is important to take immediate action. The most important thing that needs to be done is calling for help. It’s essential that emergency services such as police, fire and ambulance are contacted so they can provide assistance onsite as soon as possible.

Once help has been requested, the next step should be assessing any potential risks or dangers present at the scene of the accident. This includes checking for hazardous materials or objects nearby which could cause further harm if not removed from the area quickly and safely. Additionally, it may also be necessary to move any injured persons away from danger in order reduce their risk of injury further until trained medical personnel arrive on site with appropriate equipment and supplies needed for treatment.

Finally, once all immediate risks have been addressed, it's time to assess each individual who was involved in this incident by performing a physical assessment checkup (ABC) which stands for Airway-Breathing-Circulation. Doing so will allow us to determine whether there are any life threatening conditions present such as lack of oxygen supply due to airway obstruction, lack of breathing caused by chest trauma etc. Knowing this information can then enable us to provide basic first aid care like clearing blocked airways, applying pressure bandages over wounds etc. until professional medical staff arrives on scene to provide more advanced treatments.
