    Exclamation legal advice

    It has recently come to discussion within the group for firefighters and EMS first responders on a legal matter.

    When dispatched to a 10-50, is there a law that states whether a firefighter can or cannot approach the scene before the EMT/Paramedic arrives on-scene.

    This question arose, and where half of our group says that the firefighter is legally obligated to arrive ASAP to secure the scene so that it is safe for the first responder to work on the patient; the other half says that the EMT/Paramedic MUST be on-scene first so that the patient is safe from further harm while work is done on the vehicle...

    Any advice?

    10-codes are different by city/state. Please clarify what a 10-50 is so that others may better answer the question. Thanks.
