    Default Read This Wreck!

    OK. You're first-due and this is what you see. Let's put an unconscious driver, seated & belted, in the front seat.

    What do you do next...?

    The best choice is one of the seven choices you see listed in the Poll above.

    Let's see how we all agree or disagree on this...

    First thing would probably be to put on appropriate ppe...

    Just nitpicking!

    How do you choose appropriate PPE without first evaluating the scene?

    The Code is more what you'd call "guidelines" than actual rules.

    Performing the evaluation would warrant appropriate ppe. I would think a vest would be the minimum.

    I would hope a well equipped and well trained Rescue Company would show up to the scene in full ppe, and ready to go to work.

    I think its cute that you put "superhero" on your vests.

    Our State Police have a sticker with "Hero" on the back of their cars (no joke).

    I saw the 360, and took it. Next time make it so the wrench monkey can't get it right.

    I choose the 360 walk-around first

    I see a 2-lane road, silver car possibly waiting at the light. Driver side curtain airbag deployed, but not the drivers steering wheel airbag. Possible 2nd vehicle made impact while turning right...if 2nd vehicle was coming from opposite direction, we should have possible front airbag also. Thus, check patient for side impact injuries. Just a guess.
