The Federal Emergency Management Agency’s (FEMA) Individual & Community Preparedness Division is launching “You Are the Help Until Help Arrives (Until Help Arrives),” a new program dedicated to educating and empowering the public to take action and provide lifesaving care before professional help arrives. This program encourages the public to take these five steps in situations where someone may have a life-threatening injury due to trauma: call 9-1-1; protect the injured from harm; stop bleeding; position the injured so they can breathe; and provide comfort. Until Help Arrives 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 that can be used to provide in-person training to communities across the country. Please visit www.ready.gov/untilhelparrives to learn more about these five simple steps, and share this critical information with others. Download launch letter.
