Trauma Services hosted a regional Biohazard & Narcotics training on October 26th at Foxwoods Resort Casino in Connecticut.
Over 150 law enforcement personnel from across Connecticut, Rhode Island and Massachusetts attended the specialized training workshop, which examined a range of topics including the various types of bio-hazardous environments first responders most often face: the proper methods to assess risk to police officers; how to navigate safely within a bio-hazardous scene and what tools are necessary to properly collect evidence in a crime scene that poses a bio-hazardous threat. The seminar also covered a range of safety protocols surrounding handling and processing narcotics including methamphetamine, fentanyl and other synthetic opioid analogs.
The bio-hazardous safety presentation was conducted by Kerry Delano, VP of Business Development at Trauma Services, with the narcotics portion of the workshop being led by Michael Holleran, former Detective Lt. with the Massachusetts State Police (ret) and current Trauma Services team member.
“We’re so happy to see over 150 law enforcement professionals join us for this event.” said Trauma Services CEO Mike Wiseman. “We have a lot of fantastic law enforcement partners in the greater Connecticut area, however many of them had not had the chance to attend our safety training events in the past. Our goal is to make sure that all of our partners in law enforcement are aware of these threats, in order to keep them safe on the job.”
The demonstration is one in a series of free seminars Trauma Services provides to local, state and federal law enforcement personnel across New England.
