2022 Firefighter Safety Stand Down: June 19th - 25th
Situational Awareness: The Foundation for Good Decision Making
"Taking place each year during the third full week of June, Safety Stand Down highlights critical safety, health, and survival issues for fire and emergency services personnel. Departments are asked to suspend all non-emergency activities during the week to focus their attention on safety and health education efforts. A week is provided to ensure that all duty shifts can participate.
The 2022 Safety Stand Down theme is “Situational Awareness: The Foundation for Good Decision Making.” This theme focuses on the importance of situational awareness during response operations to help firefighters solve problems, prevent bad outcomes, and make better decisions in high stress environments. Five daily focus areas will highlight situational awareness during different incident types: structure fires, EMS, wildland incidents, roadway response, and acts of violence."
