When responding to an emergency, it is vital that you are easily identifiable as a medical professional and you have all the necessary equipment to protect yourself at the scene. Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) and appropriate Identification in the form of reflective badges, epaulettes or reflective Univisors should be part of your medical kit.
Identifying Yourself as a Medical Professional
There are a number of ways to clearly identify yourself as a medical professional at the scene of an accident or emergency. We recommend wearing identification such as a reflective badge to denote your role and making sure your vehicle is equipped with temporary reflective identification in the form of a Univisor which fits most vehicles by sliding over the sun visor.
