1. The rescue team should arrive at the scene and size up the situation, that is, take control of the situation.

2. Hazard Control: In hazardous terrain rescues, helicopters can be useful.

3. Patient Access: Rescue teams must be able to gain access to victims in danger.

4. Medical Treatment: Rescued victims must be treated by administering first aid.

5. Disentanglement: Materials used for carrying survivors must be removed, such as ropes.

6. Work with time: try to assess the victim as quickly as possible, if they are unconscious and immobile, then administer ABC of first aid.

7.  Protect the Scene: Use signage to prevent more injuries from affecting victims in a road accident. You can put a caution triangle in the middle of the road. In a scenario where no signage can be found in an accident scene, we use grasses or tree branches to slow down incoming vehicles.

A caution triangle is used in order to secure a traffic accident site. 

8. Transfer the Victim: The rescue team should make immediate arrangements, on how to transfer the accident victims to the hospital, especially when they are unconscious or badly injured.
