Fire/EMS Safety, Health and Survival Week
June 17-23, 2012
Theme: Rules You Can Live By
Visit the International Fire/EMS Safety and Health Week website.
The 2012 Safety Week theme is Rules You Can Live By, which focuses on the Rules of Engagement for Firefighter Safety, Survival and Health. Fire departments are encouraged to suspend all non-emergency activity during Safety and Health Week in order to focus on safety and health training and education. An entire week is provided to ensure all shifts and duty crew can participate.
What is Safety Week?
International Fire/EMS Safety and Health Week is a joint initiative of the IAFC and the National Volunteer Fire Council. The event is coordinated by the IAFC Safety, Health and Survival Section and the NVFC Heart-Healthy Firefighter Program, and is supported by national and international fire and emergency service organizations as well as health and safety-related organizations and agencies.
The 2012 International Fire/EMS Safety and Health Week marks the unification of the IAFC’s Fire/EMS Safety, Health and Survival Week with the NVFC’s National Firefighter Health Week. The goal of both organizations is to reduce the number of preventable injury and death in the fire and emergency services. Safety and Health Week focuses on the critical importance of responders taking care of themselves both on and off the emergency incident scene. The week is designed to increase awareness and action so that safety and health become a priority in all fire departments.
