Most manufacturers have posted their updated ERGs on their websites and submitted them to the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA). NFPA maintains a collection of emergency response guides from 35+ alternative fuel vehicle manufacturers. The guides are free to download.

When that life-threatening call comes in emergency responders will be ready. But what if someone was already at the scene, applying lifesaving CPR and defibrillation until they arrive With PulsePoint, the dispatch center immediately alerts CPR-trained individuals about nearby cardiac arrest events through the free PulsePoint Respond mobile app, and also lets them know the location of the closest AEDs.

First responders such as firefighters, police officers, paramedics, and emergency medical technicians have a higher risk of asbestos exposure than many other careers. Often, the working environments of first responders involve damaged structures or vehicles. These areas are more likely to have airborne asbestos that can be inhaled or swallowed. After years of service, some first responders have developed asbestos-related cancers like mesothelioma.

During an emergency such as an accident, natural disaster, or terrorist attack, first responders offer medical care to those affected. They may also lead or assist with search and rescue efforts. In the United States, certified emergency medical responders may control bleeding, perform cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR), administer oxygen or use an automated external defibrillator (AED), stabilize fractures, administer basic medications, and transport patients, among other tasks.

Because of this, occupations such as firefighters, police officers, paramedics, EMTs, and search and rescue crews have a higher-than-average chance of exposure to asbestos when responding to disasters (fires, earthquakes, tornados, hurricanes, floods, etc.) or other destructive events where there has been significant damage to a structure that contains asbestos. This, in turn, puts first responders at a higher risk of developing asbestos-related diseases than the average person.Overwhelmed by your mesothelioma diagnosis or treatment Download our free guide to learn more about the disease.Download Guide

A 2013 study conducted by the Occupational Health and Safety Administration (OSHA) found that firefighters are twice as likely to develop the disease than the average person. Other first responders face a similar increased risk when responding to emergencies where damaged asbestos is present.

One of the most well-known examples of first responders being put at risk of asbestos exposure (and the subsequent development of asbestos-caused diseases, including mesothelioma) is the September 11 terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center in New York City. When the North and South Towers collapsed, a toxic plume of dust and debris flew into the air, including approximately 2,000 tons of asbestos.

Because of their increased risk of exposure to asbestos, first responders should talk with their doctors about potential health risks. They may also consider requesting early or additional cancer screenings. Early detection can have a significant impact on your prognosis since cancers like mesothelioma are more treatable at early stages.

According to Homeland Security, it takes 4-11 minutes for a 911 call to be processed and first responders dispatched, and 4-18 minutes for a first responder to be on the scene and act. SchoolGuard active shooter alert app shortens these notification and response times and greatly improves the chance of saving lives, with the touch of a smartphone screen.

No other emergency alert app in the country gives you a network of over 65,000 federal, state, and local Hero911 first responders who can be there faster than those dispatched through 911 and the precious seconds needed When Seconds Save Lives.

Other jurisdictions around the country have implemented programs similar to civilian first responders. (see Appendix) Some programs send responders only through a nonemergency phone number, rather than dispatching calls through 911. Other jurisdictions divert calls to a virtual clinician instead of an in-person responder or provide long-term follow-up to high utilizers of emergency services but do not respond to calls for service.

Like other first responders, CRs should receive extensive training in the skills required for their job. While the specific training needs will vary based on different calls for service, trainings might cover conflict mediation, de-escalation, harm reduction, restorative justice, cognitive behavioral therapy, motivational interviewing, and basic medical care. CRs must also receive training and ongoing resources to support their own emotional and physical well-being, with a focus on helping CRs cope with vicarious trauma and stress associated with their day-to-day responsibilities.

Do you or anyone you know need some assistance during times of an emergency event The state of Texas presents the STEAR program. The STEAR program is a free registry that provides local emergency planners and emergency responders with additional information on the needs in their community. Texas communities use the registry information in different ways. Registering yourself in the STEAR registry DOES NOT guarantee that you will receive a specific service during an emergency. Available services will vary by community. For more information on how your community will use information in the STEAR registry, contact your local emergency management office.

Registering for STEAR doesn't guarantee you assistance in an emergency. By registering in STEAR you are consenting to sharing your information with first responders and other state agencies during a disaster.

Humphrey says the primary purpose of the bill is to make sure dispatchers are appropriately titled as public safety telecommunications, which classifies them as first responders who perform a public service by receiving and dispatching calls for emergency assistance. This classification will guarantee they receive the specialized training other emergency medical services (EMS) personnel undergo to help avoid the loss of life.

Smart911, an optional and free service, is available for all Jones County residents. Residents can use the service to share relevant information with first responders before an emergency occurs, resulting in quicker and more efficient emergency responses.

A member was recently asking about "key safes," which are locked boxes on the outside of your home which hold a key to the front door. If/When first responders come to your home and need to enter, if they can key into your home, then there is no need to damage the door or windows by breaking them. Two critical points are: 1) how to advise the Fire Department where the key is and how to access it; and 2) obtaining and installing said box. Please check out this information. If you decide you want the Fire Department's key safe, please go to the main office on Columbus Rd. (best to call first, 740-592-3301), and fill out the form. You can choose what equipment you want to purchase. 59ce067264
