Traffic accident

Operation of police, rescue service, and ambulance

When the operational services arrive at the scene, an operation based on relatively fixed rules will begin.

The police shut down traffic when needed, restrict the scene and carry out preliminary investigations to determine the causes of the accident.

The rescue service eliminates the risk of fire and helps the victims out of the vehicle.

The ambulance provides first aid and transports the victims to the hospital.

The main objective of all these operations is to save lives. All actions must be aimed at ensuring that the injured person receives medical assistance as soon as possible without any further injury.

As a rule, provision of first aid is possible even if the victim is stuck in the vehicle, which is why ultrafast evacuation of the victim from the vehicle is imperative only when the vehicle is on fire. The nearby area of ​​the event is also surely searched, because people in shock can escape to the forest, and some injured people may have gone to seek help.

You must then be located outside the separating tape, but if you have the information that the operating personnel needs to know, convey it to them (if you saw how the accident happened, if you saw who was driving if you saw someone leaving the scene, etc.).


NEVER DISTURB THE OPERATIONAL STAFF IN ACTION, BUT PROVIDE THEM WITH THE NECESSARY INFORMATION!
