2013 Safety and Health Planner Now Available
October 31, 2012
The Safety, Health & Survival (SHS) Section of the International Association of Fire Chiefs has once again produced its popular pocket-sized safety planner/calendar for firefighters. The 2013 planners are now available for purchase.
The planner is full of firefighter safety and health information that provides useful, simple messages that firefighters and officers can apply to fireground/EMS operations or in their personal lives. References are provided to NIOSH and Near-Miss reports so all personnel can have an increased understanding and application of the safety and health message.
“The section believes there's no greater gift to your team then sending them home at the end of each shift,” said Chief Matt Tobia, chair of the SHS Section. “We hope that others will join the many departments that have made this planner a small but important end-of-year thank you gift to their teams.”
Promoting safety and wellness is a daily priority, and at just $1.50 per planner, this is one of the most cost-effective tools to have. Orders of 50 or more can be personalized with a department or organization's name and information on the front cover.
Orders can be placed in one of three ways:
• Online with Positive Promotions
• Phone: 877-258-1225 Ext. 4021 (Monday–Friday, 8 am–7 pm ET)
• Fax: 877-258-1226
This small investment in a department’s health and safety will also contribute to a larger impact. Proceeds from planner sales directly support the work of the SHS Section, such as Safety and Health Week resources and events, the Rules of Engagement tools and furthering important policy issues, such as annual medical exams.
