Infectious / Communicable Exposure Incident Form
The Infection Control Program investigates all incidents of disease exposure when alerted by either our members or other outside agencies. Working closely with the department’s physicians, physician assistants and nurses, the Infection Control Officer informs members as to possible disease infection and the proper course of drug therapies.
Throughout the Phoenix Fire Department, trained technicians are certified through the County Health Department and provide exposure testing and give immunizations. This job ranges from administering the TB skin test and hepatitis vaccines to flu shots during high season. Along with providing recommendations for the proper use of their personal protective equipment, the Infection Control Officer informs everyone on the latest information from the Centers for Disease Control and OSHA concerning blood borne pathogens.
