  •    Alert the first-aider who should take appropriate action for minor injuries.
  •    In the event of an injury requiring specialist treatment, call the emergency services.
  •    Deal with the rest of the group and ensure that they are adequately supervised.
  •    Do not move someone with major injuries. Wait for the emergency medics.
