Emergency Medical Services (EMS) vehicles respond to a wide variety of roadway incidents, such as crashes, pedestrians struck by vehicles, other medical emergencies, natural disasters, and weather events. In addition to working on a roadway incident, many times EMS must park on and traverse a roadway to access patients who are in off-roadway locations. Operating on and traversing active roadways puts EMS providers at risk of being struck by vehicles. However, many EMS agencies do not have policies on the safety aspects of roadway operations. This program focuses on safety issues associated with operating as an EMS provider on or near a roadway, particularly in the single ambulance response situation where other agencies are not (or are not yet) on scene to assist with traffic incident management tasks.
