Usually when artists are asked to portray this time of year they render drawings or craft visions in our heads of houses set in snow covered landscapes with the soft glow of multi-colored lights spilling out through a window from their string draped perches around a full proud pine tree that is supported at its base by colorfully wrapped boxes of all shapes and sizes that are set just far enough away from a roaring fireplace so they are in no danger of combustion and therefore are of no danger to the occupants of the home. Those artists… they’re such a crafty bunch!
If you ask an EMT or a Paramedic to portray this time of year, you would probably end up with a video just like this one…
That video is from the Transport Accident Commission down in Australia who are celebrating 20 years of PSAs. They have been able to reduce transportation fatalities by more than half in that time, but as they point out there is still a long way to go.
Be sure to be safe whether you’re at work or not during this holiday season.
