Medical Emergency

Injured Person

It is usually best not to transport an injured person from an accident scene before medical personnel arrive. Moving a victim improperly can make an injury worse, particularly when the injury is to the head, neck, or back. If possible, send someone to notify a Bureau of Land Management Ranger or call 911. Global Positioning System (GPS) coordinates are extremely useful in locating the victim quickly.
