HIV+ Protecting Those Who Protect and Serve Us: 
For generations you and your co-workers have protected us - the general public - from harm and saved us in our time of need. Today and here in New York City, WE will do our part to help protect YOU. This forum is open to anyone interested in taking this discussion on HIV Prevention, Status Disclosure and Education to a HIGHER STANDARD here in New York City, NY. What is learned and understood here, can be the model for police, fire fighters and EMS workers nation wide. Please share this with others, add your comments or thoughts and contact me if you would like me to speak about this at your next meeting.

The POZ CODE, a revolutionary HIV PREVENTION, STATUS DISCLOSURE, COMUNICATION Strategy that is fashionably and politicaly correct. Thereby proving that HIV+ people are in fact openly disclosing their HIV+ status in public with confidence.

For example: You and your partner are called to respond to a gun shot heard in your local community,you respond to the call.Upon arrival, you notice a subject laying on the ground, bleeding from the gun shot wound. The subject can not communicate with you, and EMS arrives to the scene. 

HOW do you handle this?

You would normaly handle the subject as being HIV+ (as you should, because "safety first") is key. HOWEVER, you notice that the subject is wearing The POZ CODE (P4P) - maybe the tee shirt, baseball cap, tatoo, dog tag or OTHER POZ CODE item. NOW YOU KNOW the subject is HIV+ and you and EMS can better handle the situation, and provide better treatment to the subject and yourselves if needed. The same example can be applied to Fire Fighters and EMS workers nationwide. ​
