Emergency Wound Care After a Disaster

PUBLIC SERVICE ANNOUNCEMENT

Script

This is an important message from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. Apply first aid to treat cuts and scrapes and prevent infection. To care for a bleeding cut, put pressure on it until the bleeding has stopped. Clean the wound by gently pouring clean tap or bottled water over it. Next, apply a clean, dry bandage. If you think the cut is infected, get medical help as soon as possible. To learn more, call CDC at 800-CDC-INFO.
