Girl Scouts: Learning First Aid Skills
Transcript of Girl Scouts: Learning First Aid Skills
It can be scary if someone is sick or hurt, especially during an emergency. But, when you've learned basic first aid skills and have practiced what to do, it's easier to stay calm and help someone who may be ill or injured.

Never put yourself in danger
when you're trying to help someone else.

If the area is safe, check the injured person
to see what's wrong. Then call 911 or ask an adult for help.
Once you've called for help, you can offer to help the injured person by giving basic first aid care.
Before rushing to help someone, make sure the area is safe. That means there's no heavy traffic, no fire, no power lines down, or other dangerous situations nearby.
