Why is the horn on the ambulance called a siren?
Can you be up for legal charges while driving an ambulance by blowing horn setting off a siren for passing someones house if not in route to a Emergency Call?
you are not supposed to use the siren unless it is an emergency, i dont know that they would make a big deal out of it if you were just doing it in front of one house unless there was a big deal made out of it.
They have a siren so that they can alert motorists to the fact that they have to get past traffic to get to their destination as fast as possible. Motorists are suppose to pull to the side of the road to get out of the way for them.
If you are standing on one side of a building how can you hear the siren of an ambulance on the other side of a building?
The sounds reflect off of other surfaces.. Usually the reflective sounds will create an illusion that they are coming from every direction. That's why city ambulances running lights/sirens often get in accidents, is drivers don't know where they are coming from and don't yield.. Sirens are really … loud ... (MORE)
Depends on patient condition. If there is an immediate threat to life or limb, then the lights and siren should be used. Otherwise, they shouldn't. They come with an inherent risk of distracting other drivers and possibly causing accidents, and in today's "I'm the most important person in the world"… society a lot of people won't even pull over anyway.. Oh, and everywhere has the same laws - if you're running either lights or siren, you run both. Never run a silent lights, because it's illegal. (MORE)
There are a lot of symptomatic indicators, but its rare to see all of them show up. Alcohol is a Central Nervous System (CNS) depressant. So we see it inhibiting the gag reflex, slowing breathing, and generally messing with the CNS. Given enough alcohol, you will die. But how much is that? The sym…ptoms to watch out for include: . Passing out . Can't be roused . Coma (always transport for this one). . Slow breathing ( (MORE)
When the vehicle is moving towards you, the sound waves are shoved in front of it, and that makes them sound higher-pitched - then, after it has passed and is moving away from you, the sound waves slow back down and you hear the pitch drop.
A Siren....but the different tones of a siren are Wail, Yelp, Hi-Lo, Hyper Yelp, and the Air Horn.. Loudness of a siren is between 110-130 db
The reason why the french horn is called a french horn is because, even if it started to develop in Germany it was completed in France, heinz the name French Horn
Hi! You should state the address of where the victim is, the time the incident occured, what has happened (if you know), how old the victim is...i am pretty sure that's all you need. Hope that answers your question!!
Diffraction causes you to hear the ambulance on the other side of the building, even if you can not see it.
A paramedic you retard. ------------------------------ EDIT: The person who wrote this isn't only rude, s/he's also not correct. Generally the person who drives the ambulance is most often an EMT (Emergency Medical Technician) where as the Paramedic will likely be in the back with the patie…nt. The two titles are not at all the same, Paramedics receive much more training. Although that being said both positions are very important and the people in this line of work save lives everyday.

The "French" horn is actually a German instrument is where it it's near final form. Then, the French perfected it. They were given credit with the name.
The beds in ambulances are known as gurneys; but they can also be called stretchers.
because it makes young people think that an old person might have did an poisenous fart
The term ambulance comes from the Latin word ambulare, meaning to walk or move about which is a reference to early medical care where patients were moved by lifting or wheeling.
because you get closer to the sound . As the ambulance gets closer, the sound waves are compressed relative to the person; so the frequency increases..
It's called French horn only in English. In every other language it is simply "the horn," and that is the preferred name of the International Horn Society. ( see the related link ) The instrument that was first introduced into England was much closer to the French hunting horn than to its English… counterpart. Its origins as a musical instrument, rather than a hunting implement, are Bohemian, not French. Modern parts for the horn are usually transposed for an instrument in the key of F (meaning that a written C sounds concert F), but players use instruments in several different keys. (MORE)
Emergency Medical Technicians (EMT) and Paramedics are normally on board an ambulance. There is one of each on an Advanced Life Support (ALS) unit. A Basic Life Support (BLS) unit can consist of two EMT's and not have a paramedic on board.
There is not a specific phobia for the fear of sirens.Acousticophobia is the fear of noise and ligyrophobia is the fearof loud noises, which could be sirens. Misophonia is a neurologicaldisorder that is the hatred of sound.
You should always seek medical help immediately if you fell as though you have a medical problem. Its always better to be safe than sorry.
What conditions would have to be met when an ambulance with its siren on not to exhibit the Doppler effect?
If the ambulance was moving either towards you or away from you it would exhibit the Doppler effect. \n \n \nI.E. Higher pitch if it was moving towards you and lower pitch if it was moving away from you. \n \n \nThe change is most noticeable if the vehicle passes you. Presumably more noticeable w…ith lower frequencies than higher frequencies. (MORE)

Better to be safe than sorry, especially in children and elderly asthma patients. (MORE)
Normally, the driver is a certified Emergency Medical Technician (EMT). Paramedics are normally on board an ambulance. This is referred to as an Advanced Life Support (ALS) unit. A Basic Life Support (BLS) unit can consist of two EMT's and not have a paramedic on board. The person being treated in t…he ambulance is called the patient. (MORE)
Quickly BUT SAFELY move to out of the way.If you cannot do so immediately,DO NOT PANIC do it when you can.
After an approaching ambulance passes a stationary observer what does the frequency of the sound of the siren heard by the observer appear to do?
It decreases. This is not just apparent. The frequency emitted by the siren is constant, but the frequency arriving at the observer really does change.
It means that the person in the ambulance is not critical, but they still need to hurry and get to a hospital..so it's just a "let us through" kind of thing.
Activation of lights OR siren indicates that there is an emergency . Please be courteous and assume nothing else or lives can be jeopardized. While local laws may vary , the general rule of thumb is... 1. All drivers and pedestrians should attempt to safely move to the side of the road (movi…ng right is typically accepted unless the ambulance is using the right lane to pass). 2. After safely moving from the lane of travel, bring your vehicle to a safe stop . This applies whether the ambulance is behind you or approaching from the other direction. If the ambulance is approaching you and has to turn left, waiting until the last minute will delay their response or cause you to hard brake. Hard brakes may cause you to be rear-ended. 3. Never speed up in attempt to outrun any emergency vehicle. 4. Do not panic and slam on the brakes. 5. Do not assume that the ambulance should go around you. While transporting a patient, medical procedures are occurring in the back. Changing lanes creates unnecessary motion that can delay or prevent procedures from being completed correctly. That said, if the lights are activated without a siren, it is possible that someone just forgot to turn the switch off. It's uncommon, but it does happen sometimes! Don't fail to yield right of way if you see this though, because: 1. We do what is best for the patient. It may still be an emergency. The siren may have deactivated en route to an emergency or while transporting. The best decision for the patient may be to carefully transport with lights only, instead of waiting on another ambulance that is far away. 2. We try to keep everyone happy. Some communities complain about sirens, so they are used intermittently in attempt to please the public. This is especially true in residential areas during late night hours. Hope this helps you help us help others. Take care! (MORE)
Most people will recover from their seizures without any medical intervention. If someone has a very long seizure or starts having one seizure after another, then it is advisable to get medical assistance.

why a ambulance has a siren a ambulance has a siren because if someones about to die from being stabed and the ambulance is caught in traffic the person will die so a siren will create a sound that the cars in front can hear they'll move out the way so the ambulance can get to the person fast
The ambulance has to respond. the person can refuse attention if he is over 18, not incoherent and conscious
The term ambulance comes from the Latin word ambulare , meaning to walk or move abou t which is a reference to early medical care where patients were moved by lifting or wheeling. The word originally meant a moving hospital, which follows an army in its movements. During the American Civil Wa…r vehicles for conveying the wounded off the field of battle were called ambulance wagons. Field hospitals were still called ambulances during the Franco-Prussian War of 1870 and in the Serbo-Turkish war of 187 6 even though the wagons were first referred to as ambulances about 1854 during the Crimean War.

if you get shot or hit by a car and you call the ambulance, EMTs will arrive, and take care of you... notice you have to stand still for the emt to heal you... if youre healthy and you call the ambulance, EMTs will arrive, look around and leave.
the sirens tell people that a car is coming also it sends a signal to stoplights for a go.
The term "siren" is used to describe a piercing sound designedto draw attention . The "sirens" were mythical creatures whoseenticing songs would lure ancient sailors into reefs and rocks.
What scientific term would be used to explain how an ambulance siren sounds different as it approaches you then when it moves away?
The Doppler effect. It defines the relative change in frequency and wavelength of any waveform perceived by the observer when the observer is at a distance from the source and not with it. Check out a flash animation to understand this effect better.

When an ambulance with full lights and sirens travels a bumper to bumper highway what should motorists do if they cannot move to the shoulder of the road?
Many highways become so busy that bumper to bumper traffic makes it nearly impossible to move to the shoulder of the road. When an ambulance approaches from the rear and motorists are in bumper to bumper traffic, the motorists should STAY PUT. The ambulance will use the shoulder (on left or on the m…edian side) to maneuver around stopped traffic. NOTE: This is another reason that motorists should never use the shoulder to pass stopped traffic on any US highway. Emergency vehicles need the shoulder to be clear of all obstacles so the emergency vehicles have an open way to pass. (MORE)

The Doppler effect occurs when someone is standing still listening to a siren going past. If the paramedic is in the ambulance, then there is no Doppler effect for him. It is all relative to who is moving and who is watching.
Ambulances are commonly staffed in two person crews. The type of licensure these people have depend on the type of ambulance they are operating in. There are two different types of ambulances: Basic Life Support (BLS) and Advanced Life Support (ALS). A BLS truck is staffed with at least one EMT-Bas…ic or sometimes, an EMT-Advanced. The other crew member is either another EMT-B, EMT-A, or an Medical First Responder (MFR). A BLS truck is equipped to deal with most emergencies but will not have all the capabilities of an ALS truck. ALS trucks are staffed with at least one EMT-Paramedic, and either an EMT-B, EMT-A, or another EMT-P. These trucks and crew are trained in advanced methods such as cardiology and pharmacology and are able to do things like EKGs, start IVs and administer drugs, and intubate. An ambulance will always have at least an EMT-Basic, and most ambulances are ALS, meaning they have at least one Paramedic at all times. (MORE)
If neither party is injured and state so then the Officer can use his judgement and not call the ambulance. If all parties claim to be fine but the officer thinks they may have injuries he will probably call the ambulance anyway to side on the side of caution.
