As a firefighter or paramedic, am I allowed to use a body cam for documentation?

Yes, in our opinion the documentation of operations is completely safe for paramedics and firefighters. In fact, some fire brigades already use bodycams for documentation and communication during their operations.

Please note that the regulations can vary from country to country. In Germany, “affected persons” (i.e. people who are filmed) must be asked before they are filmed. As there is no official order, people can refuse to do this. In this case you are not allowed to film the person.

In any case, if you are filming in private homes, you should refrain from publishing the video material. Even if you have permission.
