Co Responding PPE

Recommended Posts

Question for those on co /rosp stations, do you wear fire kit for medic calls, we have been told just to attend in uniform (with gloves etc) due to turn around of fire kit.

Station wear (except the colour) is exactly the same as Paramedics wear on a daily basis. "Normal" ambulance calls don't require specialist PPE like fire kit.

We attend in our normal work rig but were issued with boxes of medical facemasks and personal issue medical goggles and of course we wear the Nitrile Gloves as always. Most of the watch will put their welters on due to the knee pads which assist when prolonged CPR is in progress.
