  1. Thank you everyone, I appreciate all the comments. It is nice to know that the majority of EMS think positively of the folks who stop to help, before the emergency services arrive.

EX. Keep a clear airway, hold manual C-Spine, CPR, protect from elements with blanket, update EMS, etc. If you were responding to this emergency. How do you feel, has this person done the right thing by stopping to help, or should s/he, who has the ability to help, just drive
