Ebola has been very much in the news recently. With so much attention on this particular disease, there is the potential for a lot of incorrect information being distributed and for confusion among EMS providers as to how to treat patients with Ebola symptoms while keeping themselves safe. To help with this confusion, the CDC has released an information sheet for EMS agencies. A copy of the release can be downloaded using the link below.
TransCare recently participated in a drill to simulate an active shooter and mass casualty incident at Rifle High School. Several Garfield County emergency agencies participated in this drill as well as both local hospitals, the local school district and many student volunteers. The drill was highlighted on KKCO News and a link to their coverage is provided below.
