ChemSucs – Responder Tactics Dictate Responder Survival

If you have not been called to a chemical suicide, you will be. It is essential that you recognize the clues of H2S, maintain a safe distance, and approach only with appropriate PPE and proper atmospheric monitoring. If treatment is needed, EMS providers should be prepared to deliver care while protecting themselves from exposures. It is inexcusable for any responder to be exposed during a response to a chemical suicide.
