To help protect emergency first responders from exposure to the Ebola virus, the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) is seeking comments to a Tentative Interim Amendment (TIA) to NFPA 1999, Standard on Protective Clothing for Emergency Medical Operations. The TIA proposes a revision to the design and performance criteria of Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) to address the risk of exposure to the Ebola virus threat.
