    What is the first priority in a fire?

    • A.

      Run

    • B.

      Move your patients - Rescue

    • C.

      Call 911

    Correct Answer
    B. Move your patients - Rescue
    Explanation
    In a fire, the first priority is to ensure the safety and well-being of individuals, especially those who are unable to evacuate on their own. Moving and rescuing patients takes precedence over other actions such as calling 911 or running. This is because patients may be in immediate danger and require immediate assistance to escape the fire safely. Once the patients are moved to a safe location, then other necessary actions can be taken, such as calling for emergency services.
