Incase of Severe Bleeding

  • Get medical help and take steps to prevent shock.
  • Immobilize the injured body part.
  • Lay the victim flat, raise the feet about 12 inches, and cover the victim with a coat or blanket.
  • However, do not place the victim in this position if there has been a head, neck, back, or leg injury or if the position makes the victim uncomfortable.
  • Get medical help as soon as possible.
