What should I do in an emergency?

If a person has collapsed or lost consciousness immediately seek assistance by calling an ambulance on triple zero (000).

If they have stopped breathing commence CPR. If they are breathing normally, place them into the recovery position and continue to monitor them until the ambulance arrives.
