@Flying Bull - even for first responders, they're still dead or injured if the aircraft crashes and then no use to the patient irrespective of whether they're arriving or are departing. The risk assumptions from an aviation perspective have to be the same either way.

You're right in that respect
But in terms of property damage due to downwash, first responders can do things, which you shouldn'tt or wouldn't do in the commercial world, even if they should avoid extra costs due to damage ;-)

Law is, that for SAR, medical emergencies, police and armed forces you don't have to stick to some of the rules
first responders can do things
FYI: You know in some circles that attitude is called the White Knight Syndrome. Just like Sir Lancelot below. The difference is in the OPs video they did follow the rules landing on the trailer.

Now, I'd love to hear the reasoning for this one....

I have to search for the incident report, but I would bet, while doing the initial approach there was no car.
Drivers just don't give a s..., if they want to drive somewhere. Sometimes they even drive across pedestrian ways, if a police car blocks the road.....

He actually did 😉
If I remember right - the car was there when he landed. A packed parking lot where he thought he could put it down.

the angle of the dangle....or more appropriately, the direction that it looks like the fin entered the windshield, is of the downward direction....it didn't come from the front.

I think the car is an Opel, so it was asking for it really.

Yeah the slot punched into the windscreen clearly shows downward impact. Lucky the TR didn't get involved in this fiasco.
