While working my last tour, my regular officer was off and I had an acting Lieutenant. I had to ask and them remind this acting, Lieutanant, a fellow cadet classmate of mine, to wear his seatbelt on at least six different occasions. I don’t understand. The last night of the tour, he had another LT come and work a trade of shift for him. I had to remind this officer as well to wear his seatbelt. Luckily, no near misses or near tragedies occurred during our tour.
I can’t believe how many experienced paramedics either refuse, forget, or just don’t care enough to wear seatbelts.
