Responding to a Seizure

If someone around you is having a seizure you should do the following: Move all hard and sharp objects out of the way, so you can lay the person down on his or her back, DO NOT put anything in his/her mouth, just let the seizure pass. But also, time the seizure and if it’s more than 5 minutes. If the person has been harmed, call 9-1-1 immediately.
