5 Tools a First Responder Should Have at a Car Accident

The heroes on the front lines, first responders, play a vital role in responding to automobile accidents. This is why the equipment in the first responder’s bag are the most important tools for the health and safety of the victims on the scene. Today we cover some of the best tools for a first responder to have in their toolbox when they arrive at a car accident.

  1. RHYNO Windshield Glass Breaker Tool:

    If the door is unable to be opened, this tool allows the first responder to break a tempered glass
    window on the victim’s car and access the victim at the scene to provide much needed help.
    This product works on tempered glass windows.
  1. Seat Belt Cutter:

    A seat belt keeps passengers from being thrown from a car in an accident. The seatbelt that saved a
    life might now need to be removed to address the current emergency. With the seatbelt cutter, a first responder can quickly and safely remove the seatbelt from the victim. This allows possible extraction from the vehicle or the ability to provide first aid.
  1. RHYNO Windshield Cutter:

    Some windshields are unable to be broken with the Glass Breaker Tool because they are
    laminated and need a special tool to get the job done. Luckily, there is a perfect tool for the
    job that can cut a windshield in LESS THAN 30 SECONDS! This tool is better than any product
    out there for cutting laminated windows. The time a first responder can save with this tool will
    allow more time spent for saving the victim of a car crash.
  1. Trauma Shears:

    Trauma Shears aid first responders in removing clothes from a victim to access injuries. Trauma
    shears avoid first responders having to painfully remove clothing from a victim and instead allow
    them to cut the clothing off with safety and precision. This is a must have in every first
    responder’s tool box that arrives at a car accident.
  1. Streamlight Flashlight:

    Many first responders have to work in bad conditions such as rain, snow, or nighttime. The impaired
    vision can make the high speed environment even more stressful. For this reason, a flashlight is
    very important for a first responder to bring to the scene.

With limited time to address a victims needs, it is important for first responders to keep their
equipment up to date. These five tools mentioned are some of the most effective
tools for first responders to have when attending to an automobile accident.
