The International Association of Fire Chiefs’ Safety, Health and Survival Section, the National Volunteer Fire Council, and the National Fire Protection Association have announced the theme for the 2022 Safety Stand Down is Situational Awareness: The Foundation for Good Decision-Making.
The week will be broken down into five daily focus areas to highlight situational awareness during different incident types: structure fires, EMS, wildland incidents, roadway response, and acts of violence.
This year’s Safety Stand Down program will take place June 19-25. Responder agencies are encouraged to suspend all non-emergency activities during this week to focus on training and education related to situational awareness.
