At accident scenes

If there is a car crash or other serious accident and you’re first on the scene, please help us.

Call 911

This is the way to get qualified help on scene in a hurry.

Stay calm

And help others to stay calm, too.

Avoid moving people who have been injured.

Moving an accident victim may make injuries way worse, especially if there has been a spinal injury.

Preserve privacy

When you’re looking at an accident scene, please respect the victims’ privacy by not filming or photographing what is going on. If others are filming, perhaps you could gently suggest that this isn’t the moment to create videos or photos for the web. How would you feel if you were the victim? Nobody signed up to be on camera here, and this is not a Youtube moment.
