Santa Rosa (CA) Introduces Pandemic Response Unit

The Santa Rosa Fire Department has introduced a new Pandemic Response Unit Tuesday, one of the first of its kind in California, reports NBC Bay Area.

The PRU consists of one pandemic and one emergency medical technician dedicated to coronavirus calls. When a 911 call comes in, emergency dispatchers ask questions to find out what is wrong with the patients.

The PRU, also known as Squad One, knows how to decontaminate themselves and their equipment and all other emergency vehicles and personnel and if need be, the patient and family.
