How to react in an emergency

First aid - what you can do

Intervene immediately if someone suddenly collapses. The basic measures for resuscitation can be divided into three steps:

  1. Check the person's breathing and reaction - for example by shaking the shoulder.
  2. Call for help. Involve bystanders and call 112.
  3. If the person no longer reacts and does not breathe normally, start the cardiac massage: Press firmly and quickly (about 100 times per minute) with the ball of your hand in the middle of the person's chest.

The correct emergency call

In case of a medical emergency, do not hesitate to call 112. The call will then automatically reach the appropriate control centre. Try to stay calm and prepare to answer the most important emergency questions:

  • Where did it happen?
  • What happened?
  • How many injured people?
  • What injuries does the person have?

Wait for enquiries and do not end the call until the person responsible at the control centre asks you to do so.
