Abstract
This article describes a common-sense approach to staying safe while riding in an ambulance. The information is based on a recent study that's soon to be published in the journal Accident Analysis and Prevention. My research team (from the Pacific Institute for Research and Evaluation, Calverton, MD,) examined crash injury and fatality characteristics of the occupants of ambulances, fire apparatus and police vehicles for the period 1988 through 1997.
