Major Medical Emergencies Basics

If a major emergency takes place please try not to panic, and remember not to move the injured person unless there is danger of further harm. Call Campus Police (x7575) for assistance. Give as much detail as possible about injuries and location of the victim. Always keep the victim warm until helps arrives, and ask somebody nearby to meet and guide the ambulance crew.
