I’ve been posting questions on Facebook Notes to help both me and my friends prepare for our “Road Crash Rescue Operator” assessment. It struck me that a lot of the questions would have essentially universal answers, and that it could be interesting to compare notes where the answers aren’t universal. So, I’ll run a series of posts setting out the questions that I’ve prepared – after they’ve been up for a while I’ll put the questions in the comments.
The questions are all drawn from the Country Fire Authority / State Emergency Service’s Road Rescue Learning Manual (2nd Ed., Melbourne, 2008).
And now, today’s questions:
What is the control agency for rail and tram accidents?
Name the control agencies for road and rail accidents?
What factors will justify extrication of a casualty by non-road rescue personnel?
In what circumstances can rescue crews provide emergency care to casualties on scene?
What steps can be taken to protect a casualty?
