Sgt. Kevin Scranton-Chaney, a DoD Ebola Training Team trainer, Joint Forces Command – United Assistance, teaches volunteers how to properly mix the decontaminate solution used at Ebola treatment units, during one of the numerous classes held at the National Police Training Center, Paynesville, Liberia, Oct. 30, 2014. The training consists of hands-on and classroom instruction split in two phases – cold phase and hot phase. In the cold phase, students go through intense, repetitive training in a simulated ETU. During the hot phase, which is taught by nongovernmental organizations, the students care for Ebola patients in an operational ETU under close supervision. The medical training is conducted by the DoD Ebola Training Team under the Joint Forces Command – United Assistance, which supports the U.S. Agency for International Development in the effort to control the spread of Ebola.
