CPR – Call 911 / Getting Additional Resources

Call 911 / Getting Additional Resources: If your assessment of the victim determines that they are unconscious & unresponsive or not acting appropriately you must call 911 and/or obtain additional resources. If you fail to call 911 or obtain additional resources you will be responsible for providing care indefinitely. An ambulance does not magically appear when someone is injured, hurt, or in cardiac arrest. You must remember to activate Emergency Medical Services (or other appropriate resources) as soon as possible.
