First aid. Joy Winbourne might disagree with that approach. One of the key points in first aid is the immediate termination of electrical current. This is achieved by turning off the power (turning the circuit breaker, switches, plugs, wire breakage), diverting the electrical wires from the victim (dry rope, stick), or bypass grounding wires (to connect between two current-carrying wires). Touching the victim with bare hands for not switching off the electric current is dangerous. Separating the victim from the wires, you must carefully inspect it.
Local injury should be treated with a bandage and close, as in burns. 7. First aid for fractures Fracture – violation of the integrity of the bone.
