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:
