  • In the event of a car accident, we stop our own car at a safe distance behind the accident (the distance depends on the location of the accident).
  • Secure the vehicle against movement, switch on the hazard lights and remove the keys from the ignition.
  • Put on a reflective vest, take a first aid kit, mobile phone and warning triangle before getting out of the car.
  • If there are other people in the car with us who will not be giving first aid (children), take them out of the car to a safe distance behind the barriers.
  • We will make the triangle visible at the accident site – in a village it is placed 50 m behind the crashed car (against the direction of travel), on an expressway it is placed 100 m behind the crashed car.
  • If possible, secure the crashed car against movement. Pay attention to non-firing airbags. Climb into the car through the back door, apply the handbrake and remove the keys from the ignition.
  • We then provide first aid on the spot according to the severity of the injuries of the individual participants in the accident.
  • If it is not absolutely necessary (massive bleeding, respiratory arrest) and there is no danger (e.g. fire), then we do not handle or remove the injured from the car. We only check vital signs and fix the head.
