COVID 19 Novel Corona Virus Info

More helpful info from Northwestern Doctors:The Chinese now understand the behavior of the COVID 19 virus. Through autopsies they’ve learned that the virus is characterized by thick mucus obstructing respiratory pathways that solidifies and blocks airways and lungs. In order to apply medicine and for treatment to work, you need to open the airways.

About Me:
I am a Deputy Chief with the Assn. Aux - Vol Firefighters in West Lawrence, NY, serving on a disaster response team and a ceremonial unit. I was a 9/11 volunteer with NYC Transit. I also volunteer, with the following organizations: NYC Medical Reserve Corps and Red Rover Responders.
Relationship Status:
Why I Joined Fire/EMS
After volunteering at Ground Zero on the pile, I felt that I needed to do more to help out the next time another disaster occurs. I then became involved in disaster response as a volunteer with several organizations. In 2009, I joined the fire service. I am grateful, that I am able to serve those in their time of need and give back to the community.
Why I Love Fire/EMS
I love being a part of the fire service, because it is truly a brotherhood, proud in tradition, and always there to serve.
Top Issues Facing Responders:
Top issues that I feel are facing responders in the volunteer fire service are, recruitment and retention. Also the lack of funding for updated equipment, supplies and training is especially hard, on smaller departments.
