By starting the assessment & treatment of a casualty with the Primary Survey, the Survival Squad are ensuring that they find and deal with the most life-threatening conditions first and are not distracted by any non-life-threatening conditions. 

Remembering and using the acronym DRAB (Danger, Response, Airway, Breathing) will ensure they perform the actions of the Primary Survey in the correct sequence.
