Dear EMS1 member,

Ambulance safety is essential to EMS operations. In today’s newsletter, we explore simple ways to improve industry safety for patients and crews, plus safety in the context of ambulance design.

We also share resources for MVC responses, offering guidance for MVC patient treatment in winter months, plus a 10-point MVC safety checklist.

Stay safe.
