Brothers and Sisters,
I'm writing a paper on firefighter LODD in the U.S. and as a part of my research, I'd like to perform an informal survey on what I believe are the two leading causes of LODD, and are the most preventable. The survey is located here
The attachment is the same survey in MS word format. Please be brutally honest when answering the survey . . . and as always comments from the group are welcome.
Chiefs, if you feel it's appropriate for your department, please ask members of your department to participate, the more responses I can get, the better.
NO departments or personnel will be identified unless I get written permission from the member or the Dept Chief to identify them in the paper. All results will remain private.
Hopefully, if I get enough data it will offer some real solutions, I we will be able to continue the downward trend in firefighter deaths.
One last thing, even though I will only be looking at U.S. Fire Deaths, if anyone outside the U.S has insight to what is working for you. . . please respond to the word document and indicate in the remarks that you are not a U.S. firefighter.
Thanks in advance for your help and participation.
As always, TCSS
