#AtoZChallenge: #Firefighter #Safety – Y is for You

Today is technically the last day of the A-to-Z Challenge.  I didn’t get to write the post for the letter “Y” Yesterday (okay that was totally unplanned) so am having to get it done today, followed by the final post for letter “Z”

The most important aspect of all this Firefighter Safety stuff I’ve been spouting this past month is YOU!  Y-O-U! YOU!  No, I’m not saying that you should be selfish, thinking only of yourself (not that I see that as a problem – everything I’ve seen shows huge/selfless Youhearts & awesome sense of of humor….)  I’m saying that you need to make sure you are taking care of yourself and that your being as safe as it is possible to be.  Your no good to anyone else if you don’t.  Make sure you are taking care of all aspects of your health.  We all know that Physical Health & Fitness is an important aspect to the safety of a firefighter, but Mental and Emotional health are just as important.  Make sure your keeping yourself safe and using all necessary Gear and PPE.  Be Game Ready Every Call Every Time (You can’t help anyone else if you become a victim yourself.

Remember YOU are Important and STAYSAFE!!!

Note:  It’s taken longer to get this done than I expected (something about distractions and all)….  So I’ll have to do “Z” tomorrow.

And now for 5 Blogs I came across:


Giggling Truckers Wife

Frankly Creative

Writing Women’s Fiction

Between You and Me

A Mom’s Point of View

  1. This is one of those great reminders that seems like common sense, yet so often we get absorbed in taking care of others that we forget ourselves. I know your post is speaking to the emergency workers, but I think your point here is applicable to people and lives across the board. Thanks, Tena!
