Every EMT practical exam starts out with a scene safety check. What does this mean? What is safe? What are we supposed to be looking for? And what can be done to put ourselves in the best position to maintain safety, or escape if needed.
This course will review past examples of attacks against first responders. Students will be provided methods for conducting a safe approach and safe assessment of the scene. Also covered will be methods for conducting patient care and how to escape when needed.
