EMS WEEK WEDNESDAY – EMS for CHILDREN DAY

EMS Week is a time to educate and appreciate the work that these medical professionals do daily. It is also an opportunity to raise awareness about important issues related to EMS, including the safety of children.

When it comes to emergency situations involving children, it is important for parents and caregivers to be prepared and educated. Children are more vulnerable in emergencies due to their smaller size and inability to understand or communicate their needs effectively. Therefore, it is important to take extra precautions to ensure their safety.

One of the most important things parents can do to protect their children in the event of an emergency is to have a plan in place. This includes knowing the emergency contact numbers for EMS, as well as having a first aid kit and knowing how to administer basic first aid. It is also important to teach children how to dial 911 and what information to provide to the dispatcher in case of an emergency, such as their home address.

Another important topic of EMS safety for children is proper car seat usage. Motor vehicle accidents are a leading cause of injury and death for children, so it is important for parents to make sure that their children are properly restrained in a car seat or booster seat at all times. Parents should also be aware of the latest recommendations for car seat safety and make sure that their child’s car seat is installed correctly. Parents and/or caregivers can call and schedule an appointment if you need assistance with properly installing your child’s safety seat. (803-435-4075) To confirm you have the right child safety seat for your child visit: www.nhtsa.gov/campaign/right-seat.

In addition to car seat safety, parents should also be aware of other hazards that can pose a risk to children’s safety. This includes things like drowning prevention, safe sleep practices for infants, and preventing accidental poisoning. By being proactive and taking steps to eliminate these risks, parents can help protect their children from harm.

EMS safety for children is an important matter that should not be overlooked. By being prepared, informed, and proactive, parents can help protect their children from harm in emergencies.

During EMS Week, let’s take the time to appreciate the hard work of our members who are dedicated to keeping children safe and healthy.

EMS WEEK TUESDAY – EMS SAFETY DAY

On EMS Safety Day, let’s highlight the importance of moving over for emergency vehicles. It is important for drivers to slow down when approaching and passing by roadway incidents. Speeding past emergency vehicles and personnel can increase the risk of accidents and injuries, both for responders and for other drivers on the road.

It is important for all drivers to remain alert and focused when driving, especially in the area of emergency scenes. Distracted driving, such as using mobile phones to record the scene or to take photos, adjusting the radio, or eating while driving, can be particularly dangerous in these situations. By staying attentive and avoiding distractions, drivers can help prevent accidents and protect the safety of emergency responders.

Remember, the safety of emergency personnel is in our hands as drivers. By moving over, slowing down, and staying focused, we can all play a part in ensuring the safety of those who work to keep us safe in an emergency situation. Let’s make a commitment to prioritize the safety of emergency responders on EMS safety day and every day!
