ICE Scenario

You are working with an Emergency Care Assistant colleague on a Monday night shift. It’s around 2300 when you are heading back to base following a busy start to the shift. Your MDT lights up for a CAT 1 call for a reported unconscious male in their car, agonal or ineffective breathing.  

Control contacts you and describes suspicious circumstances with fumes being seen in the car with the patient. The Fire Service are also responding, but you are advised to conduct your own risk assessment on scene.
