face or roll backwards. Wipe any vomit away from their mouth and keep their head pointing down to allow any vomit to escape without them breathing it in or swallowing it. Do not give them anything to eat or drink. Poisonous fumes If you think someone has inhaled poisonous fumes, assess the situation first and do not put yourself in danger. Call for help and, if it is safe to do so, remove the person from the contaminated area. Before entering the area, take two or three deep breaths and hold your breath until you come out. As soon as you are out of the affected area, call 999. ] ]
