Down With That Sorta Thing
- Dec 22, 2003
Firefighters were in the building after the Manchester Arena attack; Paramedics weren't. "Firefighter paramedics" would have solved the problem.Not entirely correct though is it? Firefighters won't run into a collapsing building for example There is always a risk assessment prior to action. Yes, they will run into a building on fire if deemed safe to do with the equipment they have.
I'm sorry but there are always going to be situations where a scene might not be "safe" but you need someone with medical training in there, if only to perform triage on who can be moved/treated and who can't.
