Ambulance - when to call one
Farmers, who often work alone, need to be as self reliant in an emergency as possible. First aid skills are essential for all farm workers and people living on farms. Knowing what to do in an emergency could save a life, and that life could also be your own.
You also need to know when to call for help. Your first reaction in an emergency may not always be the best course of action.
Even if you think it will take too long for help to arrive, always call triple zero (000) in an emergency as the operator may give you life saving advice.
If you are out of phone range, always make sure someone knows where you are going and what time you expect to return.
