boca fireBOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) — Wasting absolutely no time in remaining in the forefront of rescue services, Boca Raton firefighters and paramedics are undergoing extensive training to deal with and prepare for the Ebola virus.

From the firefighter and paramedic union:

The Boca Raton Firefighters and Paramedics will be training on new equipment and policies in preparation for the Ebola virus.  Over 200 members will have a crash course this week in protecting the public and themselves from this debilitating virus.  The Boca Raton Fire Department has purchased potable UVGI (Ultra-Violet Germicidal Irradiation) lights and a sanitizing disinfectant fogger that are to be placed in the rescue trucks to protect patients transported by Boca Raton Fire Rescue.

First responders are put in dangerous uncontrolled environments on a daily basis.  It is essential that they are protected so they can serve the public during emergency situations.
