This week's Monday Night Drill was a "Bloodborne Pathogens Webinar" drill for our members. This drill had our members logging onto their computers due to the COVID-19 pandemic as the Vista Fire Department continues with holding online learning.
The "Bloodborne Pathogens Webinar" drill had our Vista Fire Department personnel conducting our annual training for bloodborne pathogens. This type of training covers NFPA 1581, the standard on Fire Department infection control program and OSHA 29 CFR 1910.1030, the occupational exposure to bloodborne pathogens. These standards requires all first responders to be trained in the recognition and prevention of getting a disease or virus from a bloodborne pathogen while on an emergency incident.
