Crib sheets, or action cards. That is what we prefer to call them. So you are the loading officer. Here you go. Here is what you do. So let us choose that one example, I think that is a pack of action cards there. Let us find a loading officer and see what the role of the loading officer actually is.

We have located action card 12, ambulance loading officer and it states all staff arriving on the scene should report their arrival to the RCC by radio or telephone and in-person to the ambulance parking point before entering the scene. Location, ambulance loading point. Call sign, loading. Action number one, don high visibility jacket marked loading and also a helmet. Commence personal log. Change ARP terminal to major incident operational toll group as directed by using an ARP earpiece if available. Establish loading point with consideration to vehicle movements, access egress grande surfaces. Seek police assistance if appropriate. Number five in liaising with the ambulance parking officer ensure adequate supply of vehicles to the casualty clearing station as and when required. Ensure rapid load and departure system is managed to ensure constant movement of ambulances, crews and patient flow is maintained.

Number six, ensure the patient documentation is initiated. Basic demographic information should be included on triage tags. Ensure the smart tag tear-off remains at the scene. Time permitting ambulance crews to obtain a more complete history and a patient assessment during transportation. Seven, coordinate the supply of extra equipment for the casualty clearing station where necessary. Eight, ensure all ambulance alert receiving and supporting hospitals of incoming casualties prior to arrival. Be aware of the multi-agency interoperability airwave of toll groups. And 10, provide a report and attend any debriefing as instructed. All of your actions one to 10 so you know exactly what you are going to do on the scene. I think it is designed to be simple, clear, concise, and dare I say idiot-proof. It is literally a step-by-stage process, which you should not deviate from which makes your job so easy which is I think the point we come into with all of this. Preparation equals performance
