You Are the Help Until Help Arrives is a program dedicated to empowering the public to take action and provide lifesaving care before professional help arrives.
The program encourages the public to take these five steps in situations where someone may have a life-threatening injury:
1. Call 9-1-1
2. Protect the injured from harm
3. Stop bleeding
4. Position the injured so they can breathe
5. Provide comfort
The program includes an interactive video; a 25-minute web-based training course explaining the steps people can take to help someone with life- threatening injuries; and materials for a hands-on, instructor-led training course.
