What to do in an emergency
Call 999 if the emergency is happening now or has just happened
Victim Support helps people to cope in the aftermath of a crime so we're not an emergency service. However, here are some suggestions about what to do if you find yourself at a crime scene.
If a crime is happening right now or has just happened, the most important thing is to think about safety - for you and for anyone else at the crime scene.
If the offender is still there, try not to do anything to provoke them because it could put you at greater risk.
If you can get away to a safe or secure place do so.
Raise the alarm. Call 999 and ask for the police (or ask someone else to do this). Make sure the police know exactly and say you need help urgently.
Keep alert and focus on safety first.
