(August 6, 2015) View our new Tailboard Safety Tip that focuses on how Apparatus must be designed with safety in mind. 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 sixteenth of the 16 National Fallen Firefighter Foundation Life Safety Initiatives states: Safety must be a primary consideration in the design of apparatus and equipment.
Discuss the following:
- Do you incorporate safety considerations into your apparatus and equipment design?
- If yes, how have these considerations been implemented? What successes or challenges did you see?
- If no, what can you do to enhance safety integration into equipment and apparatus design?
