Virginia Beach EMS Career-Volunteers Go Through N95 Mask Fit Test Update

Posted by & filed under Local and Regional Events.

Virginia Beach EMS first responders are facing challenging times. We are operating at a higher level of caution during the COVID-19 Pandemic. The safety of our volunteer and career staff is crucial. We have seen an increase use of personal protective equipment, “PPE” while providing emergency medical care.

Recently the Virginia Beach Department of EMS ran our career and volunteer staff through “Fit-Testing” sites to determine proper sizing of 3M-8511 and 8210V N95 masks for each first responder.
