In the wake of two Dallas-area nurses contracting the Ebola virus from a patient earlier this month, the city's first responders are tailoring procedures it already has in place should the need arise in Hendersonville, according to Human Resources Manager Kaye Palmer. Palmer said the city is also following guidelines recommended by the United States Centers for Disease Control and Prevention for emergency personnel and closely monitoring the situation.
