If you witness a medical emergency
Make sure the area is safe
- Try to stay calm.
- Identify any dangers and safeguard the scene. (For example, if someone has fallen in the parking lot, ask bystanders to wave any approaching vehicles away.)
- Ask a bystander to first call 911 and then call UFV first aid 1-855-282-7770 (local 7770 from a UFV phone).
- If you are alone, make the call yourself.
Stay at the scene
- Remain with the patient until trained help arrives.
- If you have first aid or medical training, care for the patient as you are able.
- Assist emergency responders and provide any information they request.
