Until Help Arrives
Until Help Arrives provides fundamental knowledge and skills necessary to help us save lives until our professional first responders arrive.
Life-threatening injuries can happen anytime, anywhere. Emergency responders may not be nearby to help. Learn how to care for yourself and for others until they arrive.
Learn simple skills useful in emergency situations:
