Project Purple, Day 11

If you see someone having a seizure, you should:

*Keep calm

*Clear the area around the person

*Put something soft and flat under their head (like a folded shirt)

*If possible, turn the person on their side

*Keep track of how long the seizure lasts

*Stay with the person until an adult helper arrives*

(*this is written with my middle school students in mind. For everyone else – stay with the person until the seizure is over, and be sure they are safe to be alone (help them call a friend/family member to pick them up, etc)
