Action in an emergency

When faced with an emergency, you should always work to a clear plan, staying calm and controlled so that you can act effectively. Take several deep, slow breaths to help you calm down, if necessary. If possible, you should send someone for an ambulance while you deal with the situation. Before trying to help the victim you must be certain that you are not putting yourself in any possible danger. Remember that you will not be able to help anyone else if you become a victim yourself. Very simple measures, such as turning off an electrical switch, may be enough to eliminate danger. After you have made sure that the scene is safe, the next step is to check the victim's condition and carry out the appropriate first-aid treatment. Treat multiple injuires in order of priority, dealing with life-threatening conditions first.

Is the scene safe to enter or can you make it safe, either by removing the danger from the victim or by removing the victim from the danger?
