Hoarders: A First Responder's Nightmare

Throughout the public safety sector, one of the current discussion trends is understanding the implications of cases of hoarding in private residences.  Hoarding influences pre-planning and scene operations for EMS, Fire and Law Enforcement Officials.  To stay current, innovative and relevant, PSC has collaborated with Task Force 1, Inc. to provide this training on July 15, 2017 that addresses first responder access and operations at these situations.  The cost is $75.00 per person, lunch included.
