First Aid and Triage

This area is set up by the Ambulance Incident Officer (AIO). Triage will be carried out here to assess the medical requirements of survivors and coloured cards used to identify each casualty's priority for treatment and hospitalisation.

The area is usually set up in a building, tent or temporary shelter close to the Ambulance Loading Point.
