NFPA seeks comments to help protect first responders from Ebola virus

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.
