We are especially linking to the section called "Alternative Protocols" which contains new procedures from a number of our member countries during the pandemic.  In this database, the website creators aim to bundle all information that can help first responders protect themselves and others during the COVID19 outbreak, and are also inviting other first responders to participate by creating an account and uploading their own material.
