Focus on Safety, Health, and Training All Year

International Fire/EMS Safety and Health Week may be coming to an end, but your initiatives to improve the safety, health, and training of personnel should continue every day. You should “Train Like You Fight” every time, practicing safety on the training ground and making sure you and your fellow responders are receiving the adequate training to prepare for safe fire ground operations.

Continue using the resources and materials found on the Safety and Health Week web site at throughout the year. Also find resources to help keep you safe and healthy from the NVFC at and from the IAFC Safety, Health, and Survival Section at

Mark your calendar for next year’s Safety and Health Week June 14-20, 2015.
