First Aid: Dialing 911? with Scott Grimes & Greg Grunberg

First aid for seizures involves simple steps. If the seizure has caused someone to fall down, please make sure the person is comfortable and safe. Make sure they are turned on their side and that the area around them is clear of anything dangerous. In most cases, the seizure will end after just a few moments or minutes. But, if you know this is the person’s first seizure or if the seizure is going on longer than five minutes, please call 911.
