In the NFL, a receiver must have both feet land inbounds for the catch to be legal. In college ball, a receiver must have only one foot land in bounds for the catch to be legal.
It depends on how much traffic there is, how bad the rain is, andhow fast you're driving. Definitely stay further behind the car infront of you if it's very heavy rain or if you're on the highway,but it's also safer to stay at least several car lengths (3-5seconds) behind even in light rain or in sl…ow traffic, becauseroads can always be slippery.

Five Car lengths, but only if you are on your toes. It depends on how alert you are at the time and if you can see and monitor the tail lights of the chain gang a lot further ahead than the car in front of you. If you are behind a car and it hits a stopped dump truck - can you stop? If you are tired… - give yourself a lot of stopping room. Actually, 9 car lengths if using 2-second rule. If follow 3-second rule, you should keep 13 car length. (MORE)
The length of time depends on the lender. If you do not intend to keep the house, then you need to make plans to move out on short notice when it comes. If you do not want to wait for that day, contact the lender. Some lenders are not responsive, but others are and you might get the help you need th…at way. (MORE)
No matter what position the player is, 3 people must remain behind the line at all times. The 3 Midfeilders are the only ones that can move to both sides. Goalies do not count as people.
As long as you have a drivers license, you can drive anything not requiring CDL :). Most insurance agencies will not insure a driver for an ambulance or fire company though until they are at least 21 with 3 years driving experience. But some companies will let 18 year olds drive. It's a matter of c…ompany policy and insurance liability. (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.
It depends what sport you are playing. I know that if you are playing volleyball you have to be behind the serving line which is close to the end line. In badminton you have to be behind the service line also which is usually closer to half court
you need to be 18 or 21 to drive an ambulance. This will very from state to state and depneding on the insurance requirements for each company.
You double your distance in the rain. the seconds method is only a practices guide for beginners.
school busses have a bumper sticker which reads "keep back 100 feet". i do not know about city busses
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.

You must dim your high-beams if you're within 500 feet of an approaching car and dim your high-beams within 300 feet of the vehicle you follow.
Three if it hits a bicyclist. I can say that from experience. At least I think it was three; was pretty hard to approximate after I rolled off the hood.
When entering an intersection in emergency mode and you are driving an ambulance you should do what?
honk horn or turn on siren. . . . that way u don't almost kill 5 people!
Allow a minimum of 3 seconds of braking distance at 55 MPH, add an extra second for each 5 MPH increase in speed.
condo and sons . monticello, in . 47960. they have a m43 ambulance parts, i know they have or had the front and rear drive shaft for one also.,
This depends on the type of ambulance and the area it is operating in. Ambulances are either basic life support (BLS) or advanced life support (ALS). BLS trucks have EMT-basics instead of paramedics. ALS trucks legally must have one paramedic on board, and either an emt-basic in a rural setting, or …a second paramedic in a metropolitan area. However, it is all up to the agency staffing the ambulance. (MORE)
They were originally 20 feet behind her, but when Bella sped up, it became 40 feet. .
It could mean several things, a few I know are: You have to pay extra to be transported with lights and siren's. If it is not a life threatening emergency they tend to not put on the lights. However they also do not put on the lights for someone who has passed away.
Back in drivers ed we had the 3-second rule. However, since motorcycles can stop faster than most cars, 4-5 seconds would be a safer bet.
While moving, the 2 second rule applies here; stopped, the 'you should be able to see the rear wheels' (of the bus) rule applies. Added: It varies. It depends on the governing statute of the state you are in.
Yes. There is an exception if they are already on an emergency call. However, if they have a patient on board who is stable and see an injury, they must stop.
Roughly in US around 5,000 I was service manager for the largest mfg. of ambulances in the world in the mid-90's. At that time Ford would mfg. 5,000 47-A ambulance chasis of which we would purchase 2,500. The balance 2,500 would be split among the 40 (at that time) other ambulance mfgs.
Depends on the location of the company. Most of the bigger cities have one Paramedic and one Basic on each truck. Some of the smaller cities cant afford to hire Paramedics so they just have a pair of basics on each truck. Also, each state has their own rules, and some states let each county make …their own rules. If the ambulance says either ALS, Advanced Life Support, or Paramedic anywhere on it, there is at least 1 paramedic on board, anywhere in the US. In some Michigan counties, you can staff an ALS Unit with 1 Paramedic and 1 EMT-Basic, in others you must have 2 Paramedics on board. Occasionally, there will be a 3rd rider on board too, and he or she might be a student, Basic, or 3rd Paramedic. If the ambulance does not say ALS, Advanced Life Support, or the word Paramedic on it, it is likely a Basic unit, with 2 or 3 EMT-Bs on board. They can do most of the things Paramedics do, excluding most drug administrations, IVs, EKGs, and complex Endotracheal intubations. The advantage of FD Basic Ambulances is usually response time. In a heart attack situation, for instance, a Basic unit arriving 5 minutes before an ALS unit can aid in aspirin and Nitroglycerin administration (In most counties/states), intubate an unconscious patient with a Combitube or King Airway, apply high flow Oxygen and breathe for the patient, apply AED pads, perform effective chest compressions, and shock a fibrilating heart into a rhythm, all before the paramedics arrive. I know, because we have done it, and the medics then infused the PT with cardiac drugs and I drove while the medics monitored the PT en route to the hospital (I am a Basic with 4 additional months of Paramedic training). The PT survived because of the EMTs actions. Don't get me wrong, the best case scenario for a serious medical emergency is an ALS unit on scene within 5 minutes, whether it is an FD ALS Unit or a Private Ambulance Company ALS Unit. Unfortunately, this isn't always feasible. But EMTs are trained and equipped to stabilize almost any medical situation until either an ALS Unit arrives, or the PT is transported to a Hospital. We can, for instance, administer Epinepherine to an anaphylactic PT if their airway is swelling shut, and administer oral glucose to a conscious hypoglycemic PT, buying time until either the Paramedic or ER can infuse with dextrose when we get them together with the PT. Again, a Paramedic Unit is best , but don't assume a basic Unit cannot mitigate and save lives. It happens every day. In short, if the truck says Paramedic, ALS , or Advanced Life Support on it, you either have 1, 2, or 2 Paramedics on board. If it does not, you might not have any paramedics on board, but 2 EMTs on scene is WAY better than 5 Paramedic Units 20 minutes away. (MORE)
Pass a motorcycle the same way you would pass a car. If you are passing on a curve just remember that motorcycles can take turns faster than a car and that many take the shortest line through a curve.
stop far enough back so u can see the bottoms of the car in front of you's tires.
There are six points of information: 1. Name and telephone number - introduce yourself 2. Type of emergency - the operator needs to know what personnel and equipment to send 3. Correct address - road name, number, district, suburb and any landmarks 4. Any complications - examp…le, the car doors don't open, the operator will send the fire truck as well as the ambulance to bring the 'jaws of life' 5. Repeat information - emergency scenes are noisy, make sure the operator has the correct information 6. End the call last - don't put the phone down until the operator tells you to (MORE)
When coming to a stop behind another vehicle stop at least how many feet behind the vehicle in front of you?
Usually, on non-commercial or low occupancy vehicles (passenger cars), there is no posted minimum stopping distance. You can bring your car as close to the stopped vehicle as safely possible, and not be in violation of anything. On some industrial vehicles and most high occupancy vehicles (buses) th…ere is a waning sign on the rear bumper that says, "Stay Back X# Feet." When approaching a vehicle that has a similar warning label, try to stop that distance behind the vehicle. (MORE)
The general rule is 500ft. To give you an idea of that large of a measurement: Two football fields placed end to end would measure 600ft.
3 AM-BU-LANCE, a method to help you is to clap at the same time that your saying the word. Then just count how many claps you made then that's how many syllables there is.
Normally about 100 feet depending upon speed. I once passed an ambulance with full lights going. It was only going 45 mph on a 55 mph road. I wanted to do 55mph so I passed it. It was hard to see ahead of the ambulance to pass because of the blinding flashers, but I made it ok. Left the ambulance …in the DUST. (MORE)
The distance one must maintain behind an emergency vehicle actively engaged in a response, or a pursuit, will vary by state regulations, and even sometimes by local jurisdiction. Fire apparatus customarily has this distance stenciled on the back of the equipment. If it is a law enforcement or emerge…ncy medical vehicle you must be aware of your own jurisdictions regulations. Note: Unless you are also operating an emergency vehicle, you may NOT follow one engaged as above. It is against the law to do so in every jurisdiction I am aware of. (MORE)
You would follow at one second for every ten feet of vehicle length. your average car length is not over twenty feet long and that extra time added on plus one extra second for safety, for a grand total o f three seconds or thirty feet of following distance, with good tires,reaction time,road surfac…e,stoppind distance would be 25.5 feet.

It is hard to answer that question. Almost every 15 seconds somewhere in the US there is an ambulance going out to rescue someone from an emergency. A patient could clinically die (go into cardiac arrest) in the back of the ambulance, but they are not legally dead until they reach the emergency ro…om where a physician can pronounce them dead. So it depends on your meaning. for clinical death, it is not that rare anymore to get pulses back with all the drugs and tools a paramedic has at their disposal. Nobody legally dies in the back of an ambulance. (MORE)

It is best to follow 100 feet or more. This gives you space to react to and avoid debris flying back at your car, and more than enough room to stop in the event of an emergency. Added: While the "10 feet for every 10 MPH of speed rule" is a good guideline, the above answer is a good one for follo…wing a commercial truck or bus. If you get too close to the rear of the truck/bus you move in too close for the driver to see you in his sideview mirrors and you are too close to see anything around the truck. (MORE)
yes he did. he wanted to fight in world war 2 with his brothers but he was to young so he drove an ambulance Well, actually, he was an ambulance driver immediately following WW I.
Why you can see the word 'ambulance' in the car mirror even though you are not looking at the ambulance that is behind the car?
The word "Ambulance" is printed backwards on the front of the ambulance so you can read it in the mirror the right way around
The same distance you should be behind any vehicle. 3 seconds iswhat most experts recommend on dry pavement. In heavy traffic, atnight, or when weather conditions are not ideal (eg. light rain,light fog, light snow), double the three second rule to sixseconds, for added safety. If the weather condit…ions are very poor,eg. heavy rain, heavy fog, or heavy snow, start by tripling thethree second rule to nine seconds to determine a safe followingdistance. (MORE)
Following an ambulance without its lights should be done like any other vehicle, a car length for every 10 mph. If the lights are on, 50 yards is a good distance to stay back. Emergency vehicles can and do make erratic lane changes and starts and stops.
It is very hard to give a certain answer in feed, there are so manyvariables. Visibility, how hard is it raining? has it just startedraining? is the road already soaked. As a rule of thumb it sould be4 car lengths, but probably wise giving 6 for extra safety,certainly as the speed increases if you w…ere on a motorway forexample. If you are unsure of a safe following distance, the 2 second ruleis an easy method for such safety aspects.If driving in poorweather then increase this distance. 2 seconds is the normal slow to stop at approx 30 mph. A way of assessing if the vehivle infrontis 2 seconds away is topick a sport on the road side like a lighting pole. as the car infront passes it cound one, two and then you should just be passingit. If you get there quicker then slow down and create more space. On a dry road the brakes and tyres are supposed to give 1Gdeceleration. If wet conditions reduce this to 0.5G, the stoppingdistance at any speed is multiplied by 2 (doubled). Another important thing is that the stopping distance goes with thesquare of the speed, so doubling the speed gives 4 times thestopping distance. (MORE)
This depends on your speed. From a legalistic standpoint, there is no set distance; that's not to say you wouldn't get pulled over for tailgating. In general, you should keep enough distance between you and the vehicle in front of you so that if they were to suddenly slam on the brakes, you wouldn't… hit them. (MORE)
That depends on road conditions, tire conditions, and other factors. A good rule of thumb, however, it to follow no closer than 2 seconds behind the vehicle in front of you.
Same as during the day. It doesn't change from the day just because its dark out.
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)
The UK highway code uses the formula: distance = thinking_distance + braking_distance = speed + speed 2 Ã· 20 . with speed in mph and distance in feet. This is for a normal, unaffected, person in a vehicle with good brakes and tyres, and dry conditions. So for 55 mph, the stopping dis…tance would be: distance = 55 + 55 2 Ã· 20 = 55 + 151.25 . = 206.25 ft â 63m . If the driver has different than "normal" reaction times and the road is slippery (due to rain, snow, dust(!), etc), then the stopping distance will vary, usually longer, the Highway Code suggesting allow double at least. However, as far as I know the Highway Code has not been updated for the vast improvements in braking, etc since it was first published; also, the same stopping distances are considered for a (less than) 1 tonne family car and fully laden 23 tonne coach. Fun fact: the stopping distance (given above) for 70 mph (the legal limit for a car on the UK motorways) is 315 ft or 96m; this can easily be visualised as the marker posts to the nearest emergency phone are 100m apart - approximately the stopping distance in an emergency!

This is dependent on location as requirements differ state-to-state and between countries. In Australia some states require a light-rigid truck license. In the US there are a number of ambulance shapes and sizes and this can require different skill sets for different vehicles.
In most areas it is 150 feet behind. I have been places where it is 300 feet behind.
You need to not use your brights when behind a vehicle unless there is reasonable distance. A few car lengths is not enough. My rule of thumb is, if I can see THEIR headlight pattern on the road in front of them, no brights. High beams are blinding, especially today with the higher brightness bulbs …and the reflections in the rear view mirrors. If you are in doubt, TURN THEM OFF. (MORE)
