Training Spotlight: Injury Prevention on the Fireground
June 2, 2014
International Fire/EMS Safety and Health Week is less than three weeks away, and this year’s theme focuses on getting the proper training to prepare for safe fireground operations. In honor of Safety and Health Week, the NVFC is offering its online course “Injury Prevention on the Fireground” for free during June. The course teaches first responder how to limit the occurrence of strains, sprains, and lower back pain on the fireground. It identifies physical training, flexibility, and ergonomic movement strategies that can help increase a firefighter’s ability to perform duties more efficiently. Find this and dozens of other on-demand courses through the NVFC’s Virtual Classroom.
