IAFF Creates Pandemic Flu Site for First Responders

The emergency response community has a new Web site to bookmark and check frequently. The International Association of Fire Fighters announced yesterday that it has created a Virtual Academy: Pandemic Flu Resources for First Responders. Visit www.iaff.org/academy/content/pandemicflu/index.htm.

Not only does the site list and presumably update visitors on current status (there is no U.S. pandemic yet, of course), but also it offers many resources, links, and tools. These include PowerPoint educational programs, including an instructor's guide. And the site offers resources for preparing responders' families for the emergency.

The site offers a downloadable workshop that can be taught in the fire station that is titled "The Shift Based Training Program: Preparing for the Pandemic Flu." IAFF said because IAFF members are the first to respond and remain on duty throughout any disaster, "it's crucial to have a disaster plan in place for work, school and home."
