The Massachusetts Emergency Management Agency (MEMA) and the Massachusetts Department of Public Health (DPH) are the state agencies charged with coordinating the state's efforts to prepare for Ebola, including  building sufficient capacity to respond to, and manage suspected or confirmed cases of the disease.  As part of the comprehensive planning effort, MEMA is working with all public safety disciplines - - police, fire, EMS, emergency management - - to meet their information, planning, training, exercise, and equipment needs.  MEMA also is working with DPH to ensure that our public safety and public health systems are effectively planning together, and coordinating with each other, in meeting this new public health threat.    

MEMA is posting public safety information about Ebola on its website: www.mass.gov/MEMA.  Public safety personnel should check the website on a regular basis for informational bulletins, advisories, and guidance on managing suspected or diagnosed cases of Ebola.  

The following documents are currently posted on MEMA's website:

 

Please check www.mass.gov/mema regularly for updated and new information.  In the coming days, MEMA expects to post new guidance and minimum standards on Personal Protective Equipment for first responders, and updated guidance for law enforcement officers.
