Infectious Disease Control for Law Enforcement, EMS and Fire

The world of infectious disease control is a scary one, unless of course, you just ignore it. We have all grown weary of our COVID situation, but now more than ever attention needs to be paid to the smallest of details and the most trivial of protocols.

In this presentation, trainer Eddy Weiss looks at the history of infectious disease in the United States, the methods used in the past and the importance of protocols in today’s changing world of threats. This laid-back program takes a look at recent lessons learned, why we should not forget the lessons of the 1918 Pandemic and how we can apply simple measures in the workplace and at home to prevent what could be the catastrophic end of not only a career but a life.

Also covered in this program is the lack of attention paid to drug contamination during the course of our law enforcement workdays.  Utilizing his experience as a certified forensics specialist, Weiss will create a hands-on experience using forensic lights during the program while learning to apply simple measures in the workplace and at home to prevent catastrophe.

Weiss brings to light the word "contact" and how first responders make themselves vulnerable everyday to the unknowns of disease, infection and even narcotics.  This training includes several case studies on real departments and agencies.

This event is open to the public ages 16 and up.

Free tours of the museum will be available from 5:00-6:15.

Certificates of Completion will be awarded to attendees.
