Roadside Visibility with ANSI Outerwear – Video


EMS providers are complying with new ANSI standards for roadside visibility. In this video from ParamedicTV you will see that EMTs, Firefighters, and Police Officers are probably not a visible as we think and hope.

Outerwear is just a small part of roadside safety. Other considerations for roadside safety and traffic incident management include:

  1. Correct use of scene and emergency lighting
  2. Upstream signage for on-coming traffic
  3. Taper of traffic cones at a distance based on vehicle speed
  4. Blocking of incident area with vehicles
  5. Lane closures that minimize risk to emergency responders and motorists
  6. Situational awareness and monitoring
