Tips for first responders for people with special needs


A small pocket guide provides guidance on how first responders should approach caring for people with special needs during an emergency. The content may serve as a quick reference for first responders who are augmenting the healthcare workforce or serving in an alternate care center during an emergency. A reviewer with experience in emergency response mentioned that this tool would be an invaluable resource for responders who otherwise would learn special needs skills through experience.
