First Aid

First Aid is help given to someone who is injured or seems ill, before the emergency medical services arrive. People may need first aid for a variety of reasons. If you know how to give first aid, you could prevent them from further harm or even save a life!

If you think someone has had too much alcohol or is at risk of alcohol poisoning:

  • Check that they are breathing properly
  • Place them in the recovery position
  • Keep them warm
  • Call an ambulance – dial 999
  • Do not give them anything to eat or drink
  • Stay with them, talk to them and keep them calm

Never leave a drunk friend alone!
