Both paramedics and firefighters go through extensive hands on training through their classes. Both paramedics and firefighters have to know how to properly wear and use personal protective equipment (PPE).

They also have to perform safety checks on the area, so they and others from the other services are not harmed while being involved in the operation, then they are able to put out the fires. Depending on the incident, the Fire Service doesn’t just put out fires. In some cases, when buildings have collapsed on people in their cars, the Fire Service have used other equipment; such as ‘The Jaws of Life’, in order to cut people free from their cars.

Overspeeding, getting distracted, and not being able to respond to hazards in time cause many teens to crash.

Federal Mandates and Regulatory Requirements Renata McLaughlin Anthem College HM250 – Risk Management in the Healthcare Setting Jeffrey Hillard January 13, 2013 Federal Mandates and Regulatory Requirements Many accidents, injuries, inappropriate behaviors and errors in routine or emergency medical care can take place within a healthcare environment, and as a result these organizations are closely regulated by a number of regulatory agencies, policies and laws. After all, this is the industry that directly affects the life and death of its customers, and it is in the best interest of the patient and the healthcare provider to have the protection of a competent risk management department. Although the risk management department’s main goal is to reduce injuries, it also protects assets, ensures claims cost control, ensures regulatory compliance and reduces lawsuits. Non-compliance with federal mandates and laws can have a serious impact upon the healthcare organization. A large number of federal mandates exists, however, the mandates most well-known and common to most organizations are set forth by OSHA (Occupational Safety and Health Administration) for safety in the workplace, and by the EPA (Environmental Protection Agency).
