The most important action is to recognize an incident and determining the need for additional help. If bodily fluids are present, then ensure at minimum that protective gloves are worn prior to assisting. If you have recognized a situation that you believe requires first aid, it is important that you obtain consent prior to rendering assistance.
It is important to notify emergency trained individuals, such as firefighters and paramedics as soon as possible. The universal notification number in the United States is 9-1-1.
