WHAT IS THE Safety & Training CONTEST?
Aftermath has a longstanding commitment to raise awareness around biohazard safety, particularly within the law enforcement community. We recognize that first responders work on the frontlines of active shooters, crime, and accident situations, where they regularly come in contact with blood and other biological materials. To educate and protect these first responders, we introduced the Aftermath Safety and Training Contest. Safety training and Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) are among the most effective way to limit exposure risk and control the spread of bloodborne pathogens.
This year, Aftermath is expanding the Safety and Training Contest. Not only will departments be awarded PPE kits (up to 50) for their officers, Aftermath will be awarding six departments up to $10,000 in total funds that can be used for a variety of safety and training programs, ranging from bloodborne pathogen awareness to active shooter training.
Additionally, individual officers and first responders can also enter to win their very own PPE Kit. Aftermath will be choosing 250 individual winners!
WHEN CAN I ENTER?
The 2019 Safety & Training Contest will begin at the end of February! Be sure to check back in February for more details.
