Thank you to Jamie Ramage, Chair, OPSEU Ambulance Division, for this timely message:
AS THE SEASONS CHANGE SO DO THE DAYLIGHT HOURS
Increase your visibility in the darkness. On average 20 people per day visit an emergency department for a transport related pedestrian injury.
Be seen not injured:
* carry a working flashlight
* wear light coloured reflective clothing
* walk facing oncoming traffic in a single file
If you encounter anyone who appears to be injured, do not move the person, immediately call 911.
