Reacting To Aggressive Individuals
People react differently when involved in accidents. Some may initially be aggressive so try to be as reasonable as possible and calm the situation down. You can do this by remaining calm and reasonable
Vehicles On Fire
When a vehicle catches fire it is imperative that it is dealt with as soon as possible. If your vehicle catches fire you must:
Stop safety and as soon as possible
Exit the vehicle if it's safe to do so
Call the emergency services.
Many large goods vehicles are fitted with fire extinguishers which may help when dealing with small fires.
Drag and drop - match up the fire extinguisher colour with the correct contents
If your engine is on fire follow these steps when tackling the blaze:
Switch off the engine
Do not open the engine fully as oxygen will fuel the fire. Ideally you will be able to find a small gap to point the fire extinguisher nozzle.
If the fire is too large to fight move everyone away from the vehicle and wait for the emergency services
Certain vehicles carrying dangerous goods must display hazard information panels. If the vehicle is displaying an orange plate then you should give as much information to the emergency services as possible.
Keep away from the vehicle unless there are injured parties that you need to assist and do not use mobile phones near them.
