Well, First off I evaluate the scene to assure that there is no personal danger to myself. This is promplty followed by the assesment of life signs, stong pulse, pupil dialation, working from most injured to least injured within reason. I quickly check over the ABC's, airway, breathing, circulation.... I then quickly attach an EKG so as to monitor heart rates, sometimes I will need to use a defibulator to get that heart going again. If all signs are still negative I rush quickly to the vet's office. There he will typically make the same evaluations. At this point we call the time and pronounce a time of death. I then immediately call the closest kin and inform them of their loss. I offer any assistance they may need. Later, in conjunction with the family we organize a respectful burrial at sea.
Nick (the smart *ss) :-)
