The annual Safety Stand Down this year will be the week of June 18-24, and the theme will be MAYDAY, Self-Rescue, and Rapid Intervention.

The National Volunteer Fire Council and the International Association of Fire Chiefs worked together to coordinate the event and produce resources, available through the Safety Stand Down website, such as training materials and “Rules of Engagement for Firefighter Survival.”

Fire departments across the country are encouraged to suspend any non-emergency work during this week and focus on training and education related to MAYDAY situations, entrapment, rapid intervention, and self-rescue. All firefighters actively involved with structural firefighting will benefit from a review, as these are important personnel safety topics and training that could mean the difference between life and death.
