Is Safety Really First for Responders?

Safety is important but is it paramount?

Safety should be third for first responders according to this august panel of disaster and EMS docs. On the show with co-hosts Sam Bradley and Jamie Davis are Christopher Davis, MD, NRP, FAWM , Seth Collings Hawkins, MD, FAEMS, FACEP, MFAWM , Sarah Frances McClure, DO, NRP , Benjamin Abo, DO, EMT-P, FAWM. We also have our disaster weather and emergency management experts on with Kyle Nelson.

Seth and the team of doctors pose the theory that Safety Third is a better mantra than safety first. We discuss their viewpoint on the show and talk about the importance of risk management and awareness in order to get our jobs done.
