Scene Safety... No, Not Today...

... Sometimes the on scene co-operation between police, fire and EMS isn't always what it should be- especially at a crash when the police are determined to keep all lanes open to traffic.
The idea of setting up a safety zone and using a vehicle as a "blocker" isn't new- hell, even the highway maintenence workers do it.
The video shows you what can go wrong when emergency operations aren't pre-planned and trained for by all agencies. This time it was a crash on the side of a busy road, tommorrow it could be a major incident that gets turned into a cluster...
