The theme of this year's Safety and Health Week is "Train Like You Fight." Find resources to help your department keep a safe training ground as well as get the proper training to prepare for fireground operations.
All fire and EMS departments are encouraged to participate in International Fire/EMS Safety and Health Week. Use these resources to help you implement the event in your department.
What Fire Service Leaders Are Saying...
“The success of emergency incident operations are a direct reflection of a commitment to training. All habits, good and bad, are formed during training so it is critical that our focus be on ensuring the highest quality opportunities possible for our most important resource ‒ our responders.”
– Battalion Chief Matthew Tobia, IAFC's Safety, Health and Survival Section Chair
“Utilizing fire training programs that conform to the highest professional standards and operating a safe fire training ground at all times are two of the NVFC’s priorities for health and safety. Training is vital to firefighters and EMS personnel, and our job is dangerous enough without adding to it by being lax or unprepared during the very same activities designed to make us ready for the next call.”
