Call to Action: SHS Members Needed for 2016 Safety Stand Down
The SHS Safety Stand Down Committee is looking for SHS members to assist with planning and organizing this year’s Safety Stand Down, scheduled for June 19-25, 2016.
We are looking for 12 SHS members to serve on a working group that will develop educational materials on key safety and health issues for all members within a department. The working group will assist in putting together operational procedures, drills and articles for the fire service to use in the Safety Stand Down.
This is an opportunity to play an important role in keeping firefighters safe.
Working group members will be expected to take part in approximately one conference call per week through July 1, 2016, and work together to develop educational documents and other materials.
What is a stand down?
A stand down is a method used by the military to correct an issue that has been identified as a problem throughout its ranks. This stand down is to raise the level of awareness toward firefighter and EMT safety and call attention to the unacceptable number of deaths and injuries plaguing fire and EMS departments.
Please email your resume to SHS Staff Liaison Richard Miller (firstname.lastname@example.org) if you are interested. If you are selected, a SHS Board member will contacting you.
