MVCs encompass a complex assortment of unique situations where injured victims are amidst a variety of potential hazards such as traffic, chemical spills, fire, damaged vehicles, weather conditions and terrain challenges.

In addition, the introduction and popularity of electric and hybrid vehicles has increased the number of threats to EMS providers at the scene of a MVC. EMS providers must review and practice common techniques and procedures necessary to safely manage and mitigate these type of incidents.

This course reviews early recognition of needed additional resources, implementation of safety measures, coordinating the treatment of victims, and mitigation of any existing or potential hazards.
