Overview

If you are litigating accidents involving emergency vehicles, you know that many factors contribute to hazardous operations. In this well-documented volume, Stephen S. Solomon, firefighter, EMT, engine captain, firecommissioner, and optometrist shows how vision is an integral component in accidents, and in their prevention.

Whether fire truck, police car, or ambulance, an emergency vehicles fast speed, bells, whistles, sirens, and flashing lights contribute to excitement-laden and potentially hazardous situations. For the attorney or investigator who must reconstruct events, it is important to understand how some of these supposed safety features actually cause rather than help prevent accidents.

Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Optometrist-firefighter Solomon contends that "visibility cannot be separated from safety." In directing his reference to emergency responders, health care providers, and lawyers, the author discusses such topics as: the anatomy of the eye; fire vehicle color as a safety issue; flashing lights, sirens, and other emergency devices; emergency vehicle accident profiles, analysis, and representation of the innocent bystander; and medical control. Some "safety" features evidently render emergency vehicles more hazardous. Includes specifications for fire apparatus and ambulances, and b&w photos. Annotation c.
