(December 2, 2016) Check out our new Tailboard Safety Tip that addresses the importance of instilling flow path knowledge in your crew. 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.
Fire ground safety requires that officers understand flow path impact before subjecting firefighters to fire suppression situations. Full understanding is crucial to establishing a safety culture.
Discuss the following:
- Do your officers understand flow path? Is it communicated and is the understanding apparent in enhancing organizational safety culture?
- If yes, discuss how you are successful.
- If no, how can you develop a procedure to accomplish this?
