The CDC has updated the interim recommendations for EMS and 911 Systems. This guidance applies to all medical first responders, including fire services, emergency medical services, and emergency management officials, who anticipate close contact with persons with suspected or confirmed coronavirus infection in the course of their work.
The OSFM, Illinois Fire Service Institute and MABAS-Illinois are launching the State of Illinois Preliminary Exposure Reduction Project. This joint venture was developed to deliver critical firefighter health and life safety research, education, training and basic equipment to fire departments across the state. The intent of the project is to provide departments with free basic equipment that can be used for preliminary exposure reduction (gross decontamination or decon) of personnel on incident response scenes, as well as training on how to use those tools.
All the information about this program, how to sign-up and complete training can be found by clicking this post.
