Emergency Services Workers

We consult with emergency service responders and designated officers on potential exposures to infectious diseases and provide advice for follow-up as per the Ontario Public Health Standards.

We also provide resources for emergency service responders (such as fire, ambulance, and police) to minimize exposure to infectious diseases on the job, including those spread through blood and body fluids.
