Medical screening per FEMA US&R Firefighter Task Force

Post by docrja » Tue Jul 01, 2014 10:17 am

Does anyone use the proposed January 31, 2005 member health screen protocols for municipal firefighters assigned to FEMA Task Force? Includes full physical exam & vital signs ( no mandatory vision/hearing) , Chem20, CBC, UA , PFT, CXR, EKG, , HBSAg, rbc cholinesterase (baseline pesticide exposure) and vaccination/TB screening w/PPD, Influenza vacc, plus MMR/Polio/Varicella/Hepatitis A/B vacc or status.

We have stumbled on this proposed "guideline" only recently for our municipal firefighters in L.A. but are not yet implementing all of this.

Please advise or comment on updated or alternative for healthy Member Firefighters volunteering to be assigned to this FEMA Urban Search & Rescue Task Force. I checked the state regulations for the Pacific Coast and none found.

Thank you
