The HazMat Fusion Center recently released a Chemical Assisted Suicide Responder Reference to aid emergency responders in recognizing and managing chemical suicides. These incidents are happening with increasing frequency across the Country. It is not a question of if, but when, we will see our first of these in Saratoga County. Multiple occurrences throughout New York State have had serious health consequences for responders. EMS Coordinator Mike McEvoy strongly recommends that all services laminate this reference card and place one in each of their response vehicles. Let’s not lose an EMS provider for failing to keep abreast of the dangers we all face out there!
