Re: Hazard Alert – Carbon Monoxide Exposure – Idling of Vehicles
Hazard Alert – CARBON MONOXIDE (CO) EXPOSURE: IDLING OF VEHICLES
Please be reminded that with the heatwave coming more members need to do everything to stay cool, with that we need to run our ambulances to maintain safe internal temperatures.
It’s dangerous for staff, public and patients to be idling in enclosed spaces or by emergency department entrances while off-loading patients or awaiting patients.
Please review the attached alert memo from BCEHS
Be safe out there.
