June 15 - 21, 2014 is International Fire/EMS Safety and Health Week. The week is dedicated to ensuring all fire and rescue personnel focus on safety and health training on and off duty. Your MCFRS Firefighters will be participating each day this week.
The theme this year is "Train Like You Fight." The theme captures two angles of Fire/EMS personnel's safety:
- Safety on the training ground and reduction of training-related injuries and death*
- The importance of adequate training to prepare for safe fire-ground operations*
As always, we wish each and everyone of you a happy and SAFE week!
