Health and wellness guide for the volunteer fire service( Book )

2 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 249 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

From Book's Introduction: Firefighting continues to be one of the nation's most dangerous and hazardous jobs with heart attacks, high physical stress levels, and sprains and strains all too common. In the past five years, the fire service has focused its attention on overcoming these issues by working to change the service's culture. The National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) has spent much time redeveloping and revamping their health and wellness standards, while career departments have been working with the International Association of Firefighters (IAFF) and International Association of Fire Chiefs (IAFC) on a wellness initiative that began in 1997. Volunteer personnel also face similar risks when it comes to health and wellness. The nature of member time constraints and tight departmental budgets in the volunteer service often inhibits the creation of comprehensive health and wellness programs. Implementing a comprehensive health and wellness program could overwhelm the resources of many volunteer departments. Time, lack of program leadership, and insufficient funding pose serious challenges to most departments, which often struggle to deliver basic fire suppression capabilities. This guide provides the rationale and suggestions for successfully implementing a health and wellness program volunteer service. It also addresses many common roadblocks

Public fire education planning : a five step process( Book )

2 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 238 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

From Book's Introduction: Today fire departments use many terms for educational fire and injury prevention programs. Programs differ in size and approach, but the goals are the same: Change the behavior of the public so that there are fewer dangerous situations, fires, and injuries. This guide uses a five-step planning process for developing and implementing successful fire and life safety public education programs. From identifying the fire and injury risks in the community, developing and implementing a program, and evaluating the results, planning is the process that ensures that the program strategies and initiatives really address the problems. This updated guide recognizes that fire prevention is now an important part of the larger goal of preventing injuries and unsafe situations. Fire departments often provide emergency medical services. Preventing injury, illness, and other unsafe situations is often part of the mission of saving lives
Emergency incident rehabilitation( Book )

4 editions published between 1992 and 2008 in English and held by 232 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

From the Book Introduction: It is only in the last quarter-century that a significant portion of the fire service began to realize that the fire service's historic role as being one of the most dangerous occupations needed to be addressed. Perhaps no event in history of the fire service brought these safety issues to the forefront more than the release of the first edition of National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) 1500, Standard on Fire Department and Occupational Safety and Health Program in 1987. This document recognized many of the issues that were injuring and killing firefighters and provided standard methods for correcting them. This proactive injury prevention program shall include the following: A comprehensive and effective wellness program; A physical fitness program; A strong commitment to safety from both labor and management; A designated Safety Officer; An ergonomic analysis of all aspects of the workplace to identify potential injury causes and address unsafe conditions that can be corrected by improved design; A program to manage medical and injury rehabilitation to decrease time loss and reduce reinjury rates; An educational component that begins in the fire academy and continues throughout the entire career; A recognition system for personnel who practice, play, and preach safety; A relationship between labor, management, and risk management; and an integrated and participatory fire department "near miss' program

3 editions published in 1994 in English and held by 16 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Concerned about the possible escalation in the incidents of riots and other forms of civil unrest and about the ability of firefighters to deal effectively with such situations in the context of the 1990s, the U.S. Fire Administration (USFA), in cooperation with the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), assembled a task force in June 1992 of the nation's leading fire chiefs, who were later joined by their police counterparts. The newly formed Task Force on Civil Unrest convened a series of meetings over the next seven months to analyze the April 1992 Los Angeles civil disorders and to share what proved to be valuable experiences in dealing with civil unrest, from the viewpoints of both fire and police agencies. The Task Force was successful in reaching its goal - to formulate a plan of joint action to combat civil unrest in the U.S. today

Wildland fires : Florida, 1998 by J. Gordon Routley( Book )

3 editions published between 1998 and 2004 in English and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The entire state of Florida was ravaged by an unprecedented series of wildland and urban interface fires during the period from late-May to mid-July, 1998. Almost 500,000 acres were burned, along with more than 150 structures and 86 vehicles, in more than 2200 individual fires. The total direct and indirect economical impact of these fires will probably exceed one billion dollars. The damage to timber alone was estimated at over $300 million. The total response to these fires, combining local, state and federal resources, may be the largest ever assembled in the United States. An estimated total of more than 10,000 fire fighters from across the United States were ultimately involved in the battle to contain the flames. This massive response was required due to the number of fires that were burning simultaneously and the direct threat to dozen of populated communities along the eastern coast of the state. The magnitude and complexity of the operations seriously challenged the capacity of existing incident management systems ... These factors once again demonstrate that a change in climatic conditions can create overwhelming fire conditions, in spite of past experience. The situation is also similar to other major wildland fires in the sense that two different fire fighting components, wildland and structural, had to work together to save lives and property. When a massive fire is moving into a populated area, the only feasible strategy is to identify defensible positions and allocate resources to save the areas than can be safely protected."
