Until Help Arrives

The American College of Emergency Physicians (ACEP) is excited to help announce the Until Help Arrives program, which educates and empowers the public to take action and provide lifesaving care before professional help arrives. 

The 
Until Help Arrives program encourages the public to take these five steps in situations where someone may have a life-threatening injury due to trauma:

  • Call 9-1-1 
  • Protect the injured from harm
  • Stop bleeding
  • Position people so they can breathe
  • Provide comfort
