This module discusses the concept of advance warning, its benefits, and how to implement a range of advance warning devices.
ResponderSafety.Com is pleased to release ten Roadway Response Safety Shorts videos that demonstrate critical actions to take at every scene to improve the safety of your roadway operations. The videos are applicable to firefighters, rescue, fire police, law enforcement, EMTs, safety service patrols, special traffic units, and towing and recovery organizations. There are 10 videos in all, with one video designed for use in public education to teach motorists how to safely pass an emergency incident on the roadway.
"We heard from our audience that there is a critical need for concise, impactful demonstrations of the key safety practices we've been preaching for a long time," said Steve Austin, Project Manager for ResponderSafety.com. "These videos respond to that need by putting the training in the hands of everybody who wants it in a format that can literally be shown anywhere. We all have five minutes in our day that we can devote to safety — watch them at shift change, over coffee, at the top of your regular training rotation, whenever. You don't need a special session or large block of time."
Developed by The Emergency Responder Safety Institute, a Committee of the Cumberland Valley Volunteer Firemen's Association, the short videos are perfect to show at roll call or shift changes, integrate into training rotations or safety breaks, and share within the department and on social media. In five minutes or less, these videos reinforce how to execute an important roadway safety procedure, such as positioning a blocking vehicle, setting a cone taper, passing through the zero buffer area, or demobilizing a traffic incident management area. They also go hand-in-hand with ResponderSafety.com's Roadway Safety Teaching Topic Packages for Instructors, demonstrating many of the procedures in those lesson plans.
You can access and download these Roadway Response Safety Shorts right now.
