$35 Enroll

Full course description

Firefighter safety is the number one priority during wildfire season. Given the recent lessons learned from a worldwide pandemic, preventing disease transmission at fire camps and remote environments is an emerging issue. Since fire camps are often remote, house a variety of personnel, and use shared equipment, they are an ideal setting for the invasion and spread of infectious diseases. This course explores other real-life case studies of exposures to various sources of infection on the fire line that in some cases were even deadly.
