D.C. First Responders Prepare as Ebola Threat Grows

At the D.C. Fire and EMS Department Training Academy in Southwest Washington on Saturday, a few dozen people, many with soot-smeared faces, milled about waiting for the smoke from a cinderblock building to clear. The crowd, mostly civilian volunteers, spent the morning storming smoking stairwells and peeling roofs off cars under the supervision of professionals. But the most fearsome mock adversary of the day was still to come. It was not a five-alarm fire, but Ebola. The Ebola response demonstration was the finale of Fire Ops 101, an event the International Association of Fire Fighters, a union that represents more than 300,000 firefighters and emergency medical technicians, organizes nationwide. It is mostly for the benefit of lawmakers, to help them appreciate the perils that first responders face.
