Emergency Responders and Pandemics

A LibGuide detailing some historic pandemics and emergency responses to them.

EMS and Other Pandemics

Unfortunately, information regarding the emergency response to epidemics predating Modern EMS is not as organized as epidemics from recent history. Because of that, we are only including information about American emergency responses to each epidemic when applicable. Please reach out to the IFSI Library if you would like more information about the emergency response to a specific epidemic- we are happy to assist you!
