The 2012 International Association of Fire Chiefs’ Safety, Health and Survival Section’s (SHS) Think Safety monthly planner is now available. This pocket-sized planner, published annually by the SHS, is full of valuable, actionable safety tips that apply to firefighters, paramedics/EMTs, 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, chiefs can put a planner into firefighters' hands; it’s an excellent vehicle to get critical safety information to 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 members that they want them to be safe.
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 2012, the monthly topics include:
In addition to these monthly features, the planner doubles as a pocket reference by offering full-page resources relating to:
