Firefighter health and safety supported with NFPA podcasts

The National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) is joining the International Association of Fire Chiefs (IAFC) and the International Association of Fire Fighters (IAFF)to bring special focus to firefighter and EMS health and safety, especially during the week of June 22-28 in recognition of Fire/EMS Safety, Health and Survival Week.

Developing a culture that embraces safety which is established through organizational action is central to this year’s theme. The three focus areas are: to fully implement NFPA 1500, especially sections addressing PPE; to fully implement the Wellness-Fitness Initiative; and to initiate an emergency vehicle policy that mandates seat belt usage by all Firefighters.
