PIER 7websiteOn February 18, the Georgia Fire Academy hosted the Personal Protective Measures for Biological Events course.

This course prepared public safety students with the ability to identify biological threats, protect themselves from those threats, and operate and perform essential protective measures in a biological environment.

Students were also given an introduction to types of respiratory protection equipment, protective clothing and PPE requirements. Students also received information on decontamination methods.

The students all participated in the experiential learning activity, which provided the students with practical applications in the performance of donning, duty-specific tasks, technical decontamination, and doffing of PPE Level C.

This course brought in 23 students from all over the state, in disciplines ranging from law enforcement to medical examiners to fire fighters.
