When an accident occurs the most important objectives are the safety of accident victims, emergency personnel and other road users. Investigation of an accident begins almost immediately after impacted persons are attended to regardless of time of day and weather conditions.
Accident scene safety is a priority for first responders, victims and motorist or other bystanders. The use of safety vest, electronic flares and batons, flashlights and portable floodlights aid in establishing a safe perimeter and assessing the cause the incident.
