Until Help Arrives Program

The American College of Emergency Physicians (ACEP) is excited to help announce the Until Help Arrives program, which was developed to educate and empower the public to take action and provide lifesaving care before professional help arrives.  We hope that you will find this information helpful in preparing to act when the need arises.

The Until Help Arrives program encourages the public to take these five steps in situations where someone may have a life-threatening injury due to trauma:

  • Call 9-1-1
  • Protect the injured from harm
  • Stop bleeding
  • Position people, so they can breathe
  • Provide comfort
  • More information on the Until Help Arrives program.
