EBOLA PREPAREDNESS FOR FIRST RESPONDERS

Due to the recent presence of Ebola Virus Disease (EVD) within the United States, LACoFD has been working tirelessly in collaboration with local and national agencies to devise the safest best practices possible to respond to these incidents. The information in these videos meets and exceeds the most current CDC recommendations and Dallas County EMS standards on EVD response and containment. This training is just the first step in ensuring the safety of both our personnel and our community, and we will continue to re-evaluate these standards in the weeks and months to come.
