You arrive at an incident. A pedestrian is bleeding heavily from a leg wound. The leg isn’t broken and there’s nothing in the wound. How could you help?

Dab the wound to stop the bleeding

Keep the casualty's legs flat on the ground

Fetch them a warm drink

Apply firm pressure over the wound

If there’s nothing in the wound, applying firm pressure using a pad of clean cloth or bandage will help stem the bleeding. Don’t tie anything tightly round the leg, as this will restrict circulation and could result in long-term injury.
