Share your COVID-19 safety measures, training and experience
We would love to hear from our emergency services about their training, safety measures, participation and experience dealing with the COVID-19 pandemic. Share with us so we can share with the readers in order to keep all safe. Videos are most welcome!
With the COVID-19 pandemic keeping all emergency services and essential businesses on their toes, it is interesting to see the practical solutions and ideas sprouting from a rather stressful period in our history. This unseen threat has impacted our lives with a sudden halt in normality as we know it and will, without a doubt, leave its scar on the human race for years to come. It is most amazing to see this ominous period deliver such ingenuity and creative thinking!
Please share yours!
