#AtoZChallenge: #Firefighter #Safety: S is for Safety

S is for Safety…….  Your Safety.

I’m not trying to lessen the desire of a firefighter, paramedic, or police officer to get in there and take action…  That’s what you guys are trained for.  That’s what you do – run towards those dangerous situations when others are either not moving or running away.  But in the process don’t forget your own Safety.  Remember, you can’t help others if you yourself become a victim.


Make sure you and your gear are “game ready” every call, every time.

Make sure you you keep current with your skills – Practice Practice Drill Drill

Make sure you are taking care of your health – eating right, staying in shape, and taking any offered medical & physical fitness tests.

Make sure you are doing everything feasible to ensure your safety and that you make it home at the end of your shift

There really isn’t a lot more for me to write on this one….  The theme I’ve used throughout this little challenge has been all about Safety and your need as a firefighter/paramedic/police officer to stay safe and the job and to ensure that you do all possible to make it home to your loved ones.

Remember STAYSAFE!!!!  That’s all

    • My thanks to your son for his service to his community. In your shoes, I would likely worry to. there are so many dangerous situations in which officers are put every day — even so called “routine” traffic stops. My thoughts are with all the police, firefighters, and paramedics who work every day to keep us all safe and sound.
