June 1, 2021 | View as webpage
Dear EMS1 Member,
 

EMS responds to motor vehicle collisions on congested high-speed interstates, at city intersections, on rural roadways and even at round-abouts and bridges. For some, they’re a daily call occurrence.  

In today’s EMS1 Safety eNewsletter, find takeaways on traffic incident management, as well as tips for safely responding to MVCs, both on and off-duty, and download a 10-point MVC response safety checklist

Stay safe, 

Kerri Hatt
Editor-in-Chief, EMS1
