Dear First Responders, Police Departments and Public Health Officials
The American Bio Recovery Association (ABRA) has launched a new website where you can find a resource to help those who have experienced a tragedy. The American Bio Recovery Association is the only organization dedicated to ethics, education and certification of contractors in the Bio Recovery industry.
Bio Recovery is the act of mitigating and remediating conditions resulting from the release of biological hazards. This may include crime and trauma mitigation (bloodborne and body fluids), outbreak response, zoonotic diseases, foodborne diseases, public health threats and clandestine drug labs.
We know a lot of pubic officials are not allowed to provide direct referrals to contractors. With that said, ABRA now has a direct search option so those impacted by tragedy, crime, and trauma can locate a qualified emergency response contractor through a third party non-profit.
The link to the search for a member company is below. We hope that you save the location as a tile on your home screen on your cell phone.
