Event Description
Emerging Issues in the Coronavirus Pandemic: a webinar series hosted by the Dornsife School of Public Health presents "Where Will We Go After Coronavirus? Opportunities to Strengthen an Overwhelmed EMS Public Health Safety Net."

The coronavirus pandemic of 2020 is EMS’s 9/11.

It presents an opportunity to revisit what EMS needs to serve communities well, while at the same time protecting the mental and physical health of those who respond. Fire-based EMS departments can run out of ambulances on any given day under normal conditions. The coronavirus pandemic is shining a light on a system under incredible stress and at the breaking point.

Join us as we brainstorm on how to create stability and innovation for those who serve!
