When you are involved in a trauma incident, your life clock begins to tick. Time = Life
The factors influencing your crash response time could be:
- That you're in a remote area where the accident is not noticed immediately
- You may not know how to describe your situation
- You may find yourself in a new area and have difficulty explaining your location
- The availability and location of resources around you
Every one minute reduced in crash response can make a six percent difference in the number of lives that can be saved!
