Lesson 101: Basic Life Support (BLS)

1. Check the scene for safety: Before approaching a person in distress, make sure the area is safe for you to provide assistance.

2. Assess the person’s consciousness: Gently tap the person and ask if they are okay. If there is no response, shout for help and begin assessing their breathing.

3. Check the person’s breathing: Place your ear near their mouth and nose to listen and feel for breaths. If they are not breathing, begin CPR immediately.

4. Perform CPR: Position the person on their back on a firm surface. Place the heel of one hand on the center of their chest (between the nipples) and place the other hand on top. Press down on their chest at least 2 inches at a rate of 100-120 compressions per minute. Continue CPR until help arrives or the person starts breathing.

5. Use an AED if available: If an Automated External Defibrillator (AED) is nearby, follow the prompts to administer a shock if advised.

6. Stay calm and focused: In an emergency situation, it’s important to stay calm and focused on providing life-saving care to the person in need.

Remember, taking the time to learn and practice these basic life support skills can make a significant difference in saving someone’s life in an emergency situation. Be prepared, be ready, and be the hero who steps up to help when others are frozen in fear.

Stay safe and stay prepared!



We all have a call of duty to be prepared to act when someone’s life is on the line.
