Many reports are coming out of the new strand of staph making its way into the firehouse. We as firefighters must be on our toes to the threat . What precautions are in place? How is it caught?
What are the symptoms?
At Dickson County, We have each duty shift clean and disinfect the common areas, bedrooms, and equiptment used on the shift. Every one has thier own laundry they are responsible for. Staph is caught thru cuts, sores,laundry,towels and infected equiptment and people. Some symptoms include red bumps that looks like a spider bite,fever,fatigue,flu like symptoms, and tightness in chest. all or none of these symptoms can be present on an infected person. these symptoms came from the mayoclinic.com. Has anyone on had any cases in thier counties?
