Help prevent deaths from children being left in vehicles

 

Be a part of the conversation and remind members of your community to “Park. Look. Lock.”

 

Responding to the death of a young child can be one of the most difficult calls of an EMS clinician’s career—perhaps even more so when the tragedy was so easily avoidable. On average each year, 39 children die in the United States after being left or getting trapped in a hot car, according to NoHeatstroke.org.

You and your organization can help prevent these deaths by spreading a simple message in your community: “Park. Look. Lock.” Join @NHTSAgov for a Tweetup on Wednesday, July 1, from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. EDT and get the word out to parents and caretakers: Always check the back seat when getting out of a vehicle, always lock an unattended vehicle, and never leave a child alone in a car, even for a minute.

Use the hashtags #HeatStrokeKills and #CheckForBaby to follow along and share this important information.

#GMVEMSC: FW: EMS and Fire Response to Civil Unrest: Best Practices

Fire and EMS personnel will be called to respond to incidents during episodes of civil unrest, placing themselves at higher risk

Best Practices for EMS and Fire Response to Incidents During Civil Unrest

 

NHTSA Office of EMS and U.S. Fire Administration share resources to help local EMS and fire departments safely respond to civil unrest incidents in their communities

 

Fire and emergency medical services (EMS) personnel have been called upon to respond to incidents related to protests and civil unrest occurring in locations across the United States. While the last several weeks have seen an increase in these types of events, civil unrest can occur during any period of heightened community tension or mass gatherings, from sporting events to political conventions.

These incidents present unique challenges and sometimes place first responders at higher than anticipated levels of risk. The U.S. Fire Administration (USFA) and the National Highway Transportation Administration (NHTSA) Office of Emergency Medical Services (OEMS) worked together to compile best practices to assist you as you respond to civil unrest incidents in your community.

You can view these best practices online or download them as a pdf document from the EMS.gov Preparedness page under "Additional Resources".
