Seizure First Aid:

Seizures cannot be stopped, so your job is to keep the individual experiencing one safe. 


  1. Stay calm and let the seizure take its course

  2. Time the seizure

  3. Protect them from injury by easing them to the floor and placing something soft under their head

  4. Loosen any tight clothing around their neck and remove glasses

  5. DO NOT restrain the person

  6. DO NOT put anything in their mouth

  7. Gently roll them once their seizure eases, to allow fluids from their mouth to flow out

  8. When they begin regaining consciousness, reassure them that they’ve just had a seizure and stay with them
