An ambulance crash should be on no one’s bucket list, but they still happen far too often in our profession. This education explores the facts, the “8 minute response” rule, and what we can do to prevent the unnecessary injury and death. The CE can be used towards your NREMT Operations: Ambulance Safety core needs. Although it takes a peek at UMC EMS’ policies on ambulance safety, keep in your own agency’s policies and culture of safety in the back of your mind. Your ideas can prevent the next injury or death.
