Your safety is the first priority. Always consider your own wellbeing first and do not enter an address where you feel uncomfortable or where hazards are obvious.
You should always be alert to scene safety and situations that evolve. If you don’t feel safe
approaching a scene and the patient, you are not obliged to provide assistance.
If at any time you feel unsafe, you should immediately withdraw from the scene (leaving equipment behind if needed) and await the arrival of emergency services.
If you feel the police are required, call
Triple Zero (000).
