Dornsife Coronavirus Webinar Series: Opportunities to Strengthen an Overwhelmed Public Health Safety
Thursday, April 23, 2020
4:00 PM-5:00 PM
The Dean asked the FIRST Center to host a webinar to talk about the impact of the coronavirus pandemic on first responders. This is an important opportunity to talk about the EMS needs with regard to equipment, apparatus, staffing models, standards, and advocacy. The coronavirus outbreak highlights what we’ve known all along: that we are doing more with less on the EMS side of fire. But it also creates an opportunity to advocate for what the future of the EMS can look like. This will have a beneficial impact for communities, while reducing the physical and mental health impact of this work on first responders.
