WMEMS Ebola Training
WMEMS has been asked to set up a meeting to provide a multi-agency review of standard response, management and transport for possible Ebola patients.
AMR has offered their training space at 595 Cottage Street, Springfield. In order to facilitate as much participation as possible, WMEMS will also set up a GoToTraining session to allow for remote participation. (GoToTraining also includes conference call ability)
WMEMS has tentatively scheduled this for 12 p.m. to 2 p.m. on Thursday, October 24, 2014. Following the meeting portion, AMR will provide training on the MMRS isolation unit, and we may also do refresher training on donning/doffing PPE.
Please let the WMEMS office know if you or someone from your service would be available to attend. Please indicate if you would be attending in person or remotely.
We look forward to seeing you there!
Thank You for another successful EMS conference this year!
