HAZMAT team and Rescue Captains finish up their 4th module on TOXMEDIC. Four, four -hour classes were delivered over the past few months on Special Operations Paramedical procedures. Students participated in lecture, and hands on application of the use and administration of antidotes for the contaminated patient. Joe Nelson developed and delivered the training. We intend on delivering additional classes with some frequency. Joe has also developed additional modules that we will also deliver over the coming year.

The students were required to assess the patients and then select the appropriate treatment to include working in PPE that would be comparable to the environment.
