This year, the National Fire Fighter Safety Stand Down campaign will focus on situational awareness as the foundation for goodfirefighter decision-making. A joint initiative of the International Association of Fire Chiefs (IAFC), the National Volunteer Fire Council (NVFC), the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA), and the Fire Department Safety Officers Association (FDSOA), this year’s Safety Stand Down program will take place June 19-25.

Responder agencies are encouraged to focus on training and education related to situational awareness as well as overall fire fighter safety programs. To assist with this training opportunity, the Comp Alliance will provide daily safety tips for our members, which focus on specialty fire department exposures.  Fire fighting is a difficult and dangerous profession and calls for safety awareness and knowledge to minimize risks to all responders. These safety tips should be shared throughout your department and municipal administration as a process to become aware of hazardous exposures and collaborate about solutions to reduce the injury potential. 

Daily Firefighter Safety Tips to include:

June 20 – Fire Department Claims Review – Where Do Injuries Originate

June 21 – Situational Awareness – The Foundation for Good Decision-Making

June 22 – Physical Health and Safety for Fire Fighters

June 23 – Turnout Gear – What’s New and Why Wear

June 24 – Summer Exposures to Fire Fighters

Additional fire department safety information is available on the Comp Alliance website.
