I have been scrolling through the the various forum discussions, and can not find an area that is dedicated to firefighter safety. I joined the goup, the Safety Officers, quite a while ago, but have seen, or received, very few posts.
I have a terrible passion about firefighter safety, striving to ensure that all of our men and women go home safely to the families at the end of the call/shift/day. I think that, sadly, so many errors are made on so many fire scenes across this great land, that there is a wealth of information to share, and learn from.
Until and unless someone shuts me down, I am going to start utilizing this forum to start posting safety items, RSS, new stories, etc that effect the safety of our firefighters and EMS personnel. I invite all safety officers to join me in posting and exchanging information.
Other areas of the FFN are great for positng pictures, videos, discussions of a hundred different topics, debates on tactics, etc.
(This thread has been posted and deleted a few times today, with "recommendations" as to where to best post it. I decided to place it in open forum, Firegournd Tactics and Firefighter Safety. If the idea of discussion safety in an open forum troubles you.......well, think about that.)
