The chief of the Derby Storm Ambulance and Rescue Corps said his volunteers were trained last week on how to handle patients with Ebola-like symptoms and are working with Griffin Hospital to coordinate a response should a person with symptoms of the disease appear locally.
“I think, all in all, we’re in pretty good shape to handle something should it happen,” Storms Chief David Lenart said earlier this week.
