With the recent death of Osama Bin Laden, we can finally relax right? Not so fast, safety is still a long way off. It is still vitally important that we keep our vigilance and maintain our own personal safety as EMS providers. That can be easier said than done. How do you approach potentially high profile assignments? Are you on the alert for secondary devices, potential traps and hazards that may not appear to be “out of place”? Listen to Jim and his guests
Tim Noonan, Josh Knapp and Steven Kanarian during this Office Hours as they talk a little about preparation, following rules and truly keeping safety in the balance.

Scene Size Up BSI….. Really?

The terms scene safety/size up & BSI are said during every skills testing station and is usually part of a question in every EMS exam. But is it just a mantra we say over and over for testing purposes or do we really think about it? I mean really. This week I utter a few words on this topic and would love to hear your scene safety/size up tips and ideas that keep you safe and on track.
