Question and answer
Q: Why is the first step for responding to life-threatening situations to assess the situation? A. Emergency responders cannot enter areas that are still dangerous. B. It is important to
check for dangers to victims and responders. C. Assessing the situation is the first step taught in first aid courses. D. The first step is actually to call for emergency assistance.
A: There are a number of reasons for this. First, the first responders need to watch out for their own safety. [ They need to know if support beams are about to fall, if a sniper is in the area, if a burglar is in the house, if there is radiation, if there is high voltage, or if there are dangerous chemicals or gases involved. Then they have to know what type of trauma they see and know what is
wrong with anyone they see so they can offer appropriate help. They would also have to know how far they are from more appropriate help. That way, they will know what is best done in the field, and what is best done in a hospital or wherever. B. It is important to check for dangers to victims and responders B is the best answer ]
