This pocket-sized planner, published annually by the SHS, is full of valuable, actionable safety tips that apply to firefighters, paramedics/EMT’s, company officers and chiefs.
Fire chiefs are responsible for keeping firefighter safety and survival at the forefront of the department, even in these challenging economic times. For less than the cost of a cup of coffee, a chief can put a planner into a firefighter’s hands; it’s an excellent vehicle to get critical safety information to your personnel without breaking the budget. These planners are also an excellent way for chiefs to thank members for their service throughout the year and to tell them that you want them to be safe because they matter to you.
The planner features monthly calendar grids with ample space to jot down reminders, tasks and personal appointments. Each month also features a specific safety topic to keep the important reminders about health and safety in front of responders on a day-to-day basis.
In 2102, the monthly topics include:
- Mayday Command
- Watch Out Behind for Roadway Safety
- Crew Resource Management - A Team Effort
- Properly Maintaining Your Equipment
- EMS Scene Safety
- When to Talk - When to Listen
- Hazardous Materials Safety
- Crew Integrity: Staying Together
- Firefighter Fitness
- Violent Scenes/Safe Scenes
