Biological Safety for First Responders is a two and a half hour workshop focusing on the history of biosafety, biosafety basics, university research, regulatory aspects and current infectious disease issues as it relates to first responders.
The events over the last two years have changed the potential exposures of biological materials to the first responder community and hospital personnel. Information about the Ebola outbreak and emerging diseases like Zika virus will be covered.
The differences between biological safety and infection control will be discussed. How these differences can be used by first responders to protect themselves and their family from potential exposures to infectious disease.
This course will be a great opportunity for the Dallas-Fort Worth area first responders, public health officials and the local biological safety community to network and begin partnerships in emergency response.
