Podcasts Highlight Fire/EMS Safety, Health and Survival Week

Fire/EMS Safety, Health and Survival Week 2008 starts today, with three leading organizations (NFPA, the International Association of Fire Chiefs, and the International Association of Fire Fighters) urging the fire service to focus on wellness, training, PPE, and related health and safety issues. Daily podcasts are scheduled from NFPA, IAFC's Volunteer & Combination Officers Section, and the National Fire Fighter Near-Miss Reporting System. These podcasts will be available at www.nfpa.org/FSTpodcasts:

* Monday, June 23: Medical issues for firefighters

* Wednesday, June 25: Wildland firefighter safety
* Thursday, June 26: Fireside chat with Alan Brunacini

* Read NFPA 1582, Comprehensive Occupational Medical Program for Fire Departments, and NFPA 1583, Health-Related Fitness Programs for Fire Department Members.
* Initiate an emergency vehicle policy that includes always buckling up, always stopping at red lights and stop signs, and always driving at speed limits and defensively.
