If you thought you had a heart attack at work and had to take an ambulance is it covered by workmans comp?
Answer . \nIf the reference is to the ambulance and/or hospital charges, those would not be covered under a WCI claim. Those type of charges might be covered under the person's medical insurance. However, state laws govern workman's compensation and some do have provisions for paying specific cha…rges not covered under regular medical insurance. The best option would be to contact the employer or the person at the company that handles WC issues/claims, to find out exactly what benefits are available. ( Full Answer )

The international Red Cross movement began by a chance occurrence. In 1859, a Swiss businessman, Henry Dunant , traveled to northern Italy to obtain a business document. In Italy, he happened to witness a one-day battle between Austrian and French armies outside the town of Solferino. He was horrif…ied to see that 9,000 wounded soldiers were left without any medical attention, and he organized local villagers to help care for the wounded.. After returning home to Geneva, Dunant could not forget what he had seen, and, in 1862, he published his memoir of the event titled A Memory of Solferino . The book was a huge success and influenced a Geneva charity society to join with Dunant to form International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC), which met for the first time in February 1863.. Later that year, the committee held an international conference to bring together governmental and private aid organizations. (This combination of public and private support became an essential element of the Red Cross.) The 1863 conference led to ten resolutions that outlined the goals and organization of the ICRC.. The ICRC wanted every country to form its own Red Cross committee to address their needs and to work in concert through the ICRC. The first Red Cross societies were created in Belgium, Prussia, Denmark, France, Italy, Spain, and other European countries in 1863. The American Red Cross was founded by Clara Barton in 1881. Almost every nation in the world has formed its own Red Cross or Red Crescent (as it is called in Muslim countries) organization.. Each national group supports the fundamental principles of the movement, which are humanity, impartiality, neutrality, independence, voluntary service, unity, and universality.. Many of these principles are at the heart of the Geneva Convention of 1864 (also known as the Treaty of Geneva), created by the ICRC. This document mandated that hospitals and medical personnel be treated as neutral parties during war and that wounded must be cared for, regardless of nationality. The Geneva Convention was the start of international humanitarian law and has had enormous influence around the world. ( Full Answer )

Switzerland's flag it's colour was red background and white plus and it was the first socity who made red colour .
The red cross is the Swiss flag reversed, because Geneva, Switzerland, is where the Headquarters is located. In addition the cross is a Christian symbol of aid and comfort, incorporated into the imagery of the charitable organization at a time when it was doing its work only in lands populated by C…hristians. That is why the international organization is now called the International Red Cross and Red Crescent, to incorporate a Muslim symbol; and why in Muslim countries the local organization is called the Red Crescent, not the Red Cross..

Why is the red cross required to be placed on any vehicle considered to be a ambulance by Geneva Convention?
It signals that the vehicle is officially an ambulance: if a marked vehicle suddenly begins partaking in combat then it is in breach of the Geneva Convention; if an unmarked vehicle is attacked but later claimed or discovered to be an ambulance, no fault can be placed on the attackers.
The cross has long been a symbol of Christianity: the Crusaders, the Cross of Malta...... Red and white can easily be seen during conflicts, be it on ambulances or a waving flag. It was assumed that,on seeing the red and white symbol, the enemy would realise that the wounded were being evacuated and… would not attack them.. In Muslim countries a green crescent on a white background is used. ( Full Answer )

The Red Cross doesn't have ambulances. They do have vehicles used for Disaster and Blood Services that are usually white with red lettering and a red cross on it.
I believe it has something to do with the fact that the Red Cross originated in Switzerland and the Swiss flag is a white cross on a red background. So they went with the same symbol but reversed the colors.
There are many reasons why the Red Cross is about. Many people haveRed Cross accounts because they donate blood for example.
It has not been renamed but though the Red Cross claims it is just the Swiss flag with the colors reversed, the cross is still a religious symbol. The Muslim countries refused to recognize it so they use the Red Crescent or Red Sun and Lion which are officially recognized by the Red Cross as subsidi…aries. However, when the Israelis raised the same issue and began using Magan David Adom (the Red Star), the Red Cross refused to recognize it and has been refusing for nearly 60 years. It is an ongoing dispute.

God did not want to take the Hebrews in the short way along the sea, because he thought that they will run back if they will have to fight. God took them through the desert, but still they would run back to Egypt because they wish to get the free food, meat and watermelon they had. So God opene…d the sea, let them pass, and closed the Hebrews in the desert. They were protected from others but at the same time they were locked and could not return back to Egypt. ( Full Answer )

Well it all depends on how long the red lights have been flashing. If you cross when they have been flashing for 10+ seconds there is a risk of you being killed. If it's been flashing for less than 10 seconds you might just escape with your life. I advise you not to try it anyway.

Because the red cross has been used for centuries, as well as the red crescent, to symbolise "the service to humanity", usually in medicine. You may notice that hospitals also use red crosses. The Red Cross charity named themselves after this famous cross. Contrary to popular belief, the red c…ross did not originate from Christianity, which also uses the cross as the official symbol. There is a difference between a cross and a crucifix (a crucifix is not a true cross). Centuries ago, every single nation had a symbol to identify their military. Different shapes were used on the shields and uniforms of different armies, such as diamonds, squares, triangles and crosses. The European military were generally identified by a red cross on their uniforms and shields. When they set up mobile hospitals in countries they visited or conquered, the people would recognise the red crosses as a symbol of help, particularly medical help. So, in summary, red crosses came from military uniforms, not Christianity. See the related link below. ( Full Answer )
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. ( Full Answer )

Normal medical care usually doesn't cover the cost for ambulance. It is important to check with any local or national private insurance company if they cover ambulance fees or not, as some people who opt for private insurance assume the ambulance is also covered, but later discover the opposite.
