The coronavirus outbreak has put medical professionals, first responders and other essential workers at the frontlines of fighting this global health crisis.
As first responders continue to provide vital emergency medical services during this time, they face unprecedented circumstances. EMS personnel must be able to safely handle the rapidly growing number of calls for possible coronavirus cases of COVID-19.
To help EMS personnel reduce the risk of contracting the coronavirus or spreading it to others, TargetSolutions developed an all-new course: EMS Response for COVID-19 (PPE, Decon, and Transport).
