Guidance on how to help others after an attack

Many people across the country have prepared themselves to know what to do when someone collapses with a heart attack.

However, being able to act effectively after serious injury from a bomb blast, gunshot or stabbing requires different knowledge and skills. Quick actions in these situations, particularly to stop bleeding, will save lives.

You can be the person to provide information to the emergency services, to help organise others at the scene and to give life-saving care while waiting for the professionals to arrive.
