After reading (and finally getting time to discuss with me) the collaboration post between BabsRN , Ambulance Driver and MattG Farmmom said to me:
"You know, the only way that could have been better, is if they'd had someone in Traffic Control collaborating too."
She's right, too. The things that we have to deal with at the scene of a wreck within our zone sometimes touch on what the cops or paramedics have to deal with as well, but they're often entirely different.
'Course, I've had state troopers tell me they were glad the accident happened where it did, because this way, *they* didn't have to deal with traffic.
Thanks, bud, I appreciate that. Meanwhile, I'll go back to telling a string of pissed off truckers that the fastest way to get to where they're going is to detour seventy miles out of their way, and then backtrack that same seventy miles when they hit the interstate......
