Identifying the Needs of Medical First Responder in Disasters (NMFRDisaster) is a project coordinating medical first responders with research institutes in order to identify need for further research in the following areas: 1) Training methodology and technology used to train medical first responders for disasters. 2) Understanding the human impact of disaster on first responders. 3) Ethical and legal issues influencing the medical response to disasters. 4) Personal Protective equipment used in Chemical and Biological incidents. 5) Use of blood and blood products in disasters. This will be achieved through a preliminary research on existing know how followed by a work shop where the needs of the first responders will be identified, matched with existing knowledge and products, then setting the roadmap for future needed R&D.
