Emergency Guide

The Emergency Guide has been created in consultation with Cayman’s leading emergency care professionals and provides a quick reference for emergency first aid for simple everyday injuries. For more comprehensive first aid training, and CPR certification, please contact the Cayman Islands Red Cross.

In case of EMERGENCY DIAL 9-1-1

 

Emergency Action Steps: 3 Cs

If an emergency occurs, stay calm and complete these three emergency action steps:

CHECK

Check the scene, check the person for life-threatening conditions, and obtain consent.

CALL 9-1-1

CARE

Care for the ill or injured person(s). If you are alone, depending on the type of injury or illness, you must decide if you should call 9-1-1 first or provide care first. If you are unsure, call first.

When calling 9-1-1 answer all questions to the best of your ability. Be prepared to provide your name, street address/location, type of emergency and observations of the injured. Listen carefully to questions from 9-1-1 operators in order to assist them in preparing responders to lessen the impact of the situation and enable pre-arrival instructions.

When in doubt always call 9-1-1 and let the experts provide instructions.

TIP: Local calling only requires seven digits. Cayman Islands’ prefix code is (345).
