MERC019 - Chemical Suicide:Information for Emergency Responders
Date & Times
Aug 22, 2019 from 6 PM - 10 PM

Missouri Emergency Response Commission has developed Chemical Suicide: Information for Emergency Responders. Chemical Suicides have taken place in Missouri and continue to grow in numbers across the United States. This method of suicide has grown rapidly in Japan since 2007 and experts agree that it will continue to grow here in the U.S. over the next several years. This form of suicide creates some very dangerous hazards for the emergency responder due to the highly toxic gasses that are created.

This three and one-half hour classroom course will provide background on the history of Chemical Suicide in Japan and the US. It will provide a detailed look at the chemicals most commonly used during Chemical Suicide, their effect on the victim and precautions the responder should take to protect themselves during the response. This course will also provide several case studies of Chemical Suicides within the United States. And finally, we will discuss basic emergency response practices that you as a responder should take into consideration when faced with a Chemical Suicide response.
