Dealing with an emergency
In emergency situations it is normal for your body to go into shock, causing you to feel unable to handle the situation. You may feel paralysed, or as though you cannot make a decision about what to do next, but there are some techniques you can employ to make sure that the situation does not become any worse, and that you get yourself and any other people to safety. Here are some things you should do if you find yourself in such a situation. Following an accident that wasn’t your fault, you should also contact our solicitors in Llangors for legal help to claim.
Teach yourself to breathe deeply
In any emergency situation, or if you find yourself in any situation in which you feel fear, you can start to minimise the reaction your body has by breathing deeply. This will cause your shoulders to fall and your heart to beat a little less quickly, clearing your head and stopping you from feeling the undesirable physical effects of panic.
Work out what needs to be done
Although it may seem like you need to act immediately, particularly if you are part of a serious accident, you should have time to think about what needs to be done and the order in which you should do it. While you are taking deep breaths, think about how to get yourself and any others to safety first, then once you are safe you can make plans for the next move you need to take.
Call the emergency services
If you are in an emergency which is happening right now, then this is the time to call the emergency services. Many people avoid calling 999 straight away as they fear that their situation is not serious enough, but the emergency services are there for exactly that reason — emergencies — and you will feel safer and more able to cope if you know that help is on the way.
