Oregon Fire Agencies Participate in National Safety Stand Down (Photo) - 06/22/17

The International Association of Fire Chiefs (IAFC), National Volunteer Fire Council (NVFC), National Fire Protection Association (NFPA), North American Fire Training Directors (NAFTD) and many other national fire service organizations combine efforts to coordinate a national Safety Stand Down each year during the third week of June. The safety stand down for the fire service is based on a similar process used by the military to bring focus to a specific safety issue through training.

During the week of June 18-24, 2017, fire agencies around the nation, and Oregon, are focusing their training efforts on MAYDAY, Self-Rescue, and Rapid Intervention. These are critical skills required of individual firefighters to recognize when they are in a MAYDAY situation; the skills they need as an individual to remove themselves from the situation (Self-Rescue); and ultimately on the team skills needed to rescue a trapped firefighter (Rapid Intervention).

Regardless of agency size or composition, all firefighters who actively engage in structural firefighting will benefit from participating in the Safety Stand Down event where they can refresh or learn new skills and techniques based on today's research into firefighter MAYDAY events.

An entire week is provided to ensure all shifts and personnel can participate. Topic information, training downloads, and videos will be available at www.safetystanddown.org, the official web site for the Safety Stand Down event.

The Safety Stand Down is coordinated by the IAFC Safety, Health, and Survival Section and the National Volunteer Firefighters Council. For additional information and resources please go to http://www.safetystanddown.org/

The Oregon Department of Public Safety Standards and Training (DPSST), through its Fire Training and Certification Section, helps more than 300 fire agencies around the state and Oregon's 13,000 career and volunteer firefighters.

Please note the photos attached are from a joint training session held as part of the 2017 National Safety Stand Down last night in Polk County for more than 50 fire-rescue personnel from the City of Dallas Fire & EMS Department, Falls City Fire Department, and the Southwestern Polk County Rural Fire Protection District. This hands-on scenario-based training focused on firefighter self-rescue, entanglement, May-Day, and rapid intervention.

Media outlets are encouraged to contact fire agencies in their community to find out how local career and volunteer fire agencies are participating in this national effort.
