Samenvatting When a collision occurs, fast, appropriate and well- coordinated emergency response is crucial for effective treatment of seriously injured people. This paper from ETSC, published as part of its REVIVE project, outlines the actions that are undertaken every time a road collision occurs. It describes the role of emergency/rescue services from the moment a call is taken to handover to hospital, and identifies areas where application of best practice is particularly important. It is directed towards the road safety community: policy makers and experts who do not necessarily possess knowledge in the field of health/emergency care or rescue and is intended to serve as an introduction to post-collision response and emergency care in Europe. It includes recommendations for policy and action at the European and Member State levels and also for industry. (Author/publisher)
