Safety Tips

Vehicles are Paramedic Seeking Missiles – Watch OUT!

This article from recaps a session at EMS Today about Roadside Safety for emergency responders.

My top roadside safety tip is to consider every moving vehicle to be a paramedic seeking missile.

With that mindset you will:

1. Minimize time spent exposed on a roadway.

2. Always be defensive in parking locations and travel paths.

3. Look for and identify moving vehicles.

What do you do to defend against paramedic seeking missiles?
