(August 20, 2015) View our new Tailboard Safety Tip that focuses on Cancer Prevention: Use SCBA. Have a discussion about your department’s safety and risk management processes and when you're done, keep the conversation going on Twitter by using #TailboardSafety.
The Firefighter Cancer Support Network suggests using SCBA from initial attack to finish of overhaul may help protect emergency responders. (Not wearing SCBA in both active and post-fire environments is the most dangerous voluntary activity in the fire service today).
Discuss the following:
- Do you require the use of SCBA from initial attack to finish of overhaul?
- If yes, discuss successes or challenges
- If no, what needs to be done to enhance SCBA use?
