Earlier this fall, the September issue of Firehouse Magazine featured the 2019 Fire Service Health & Safety Report. This 32-page supplement contains 15 articles by some the fire service’s most respected authors and some of its rising stars.
The National Fallen Firefighters Foundation and the First Responder Center for Excellence collaborated again with Firehouse to address today’s critical fire service issues, providing readers with insights they can convert to knowledge. Articles in this year’s Fire Service Health & Safety Report cover a wide range of topics including leadership, suicide, operational tempo, case studies, behavioral wellness, and the value of staff rides.
This year’s report features two intersecting circles of critical firefighter performance, which includes decision making and health and wellness, and explores the link between the 16 Firefighter Life Safety Initiatives and successful outcomes. We are also honored to include a must-read piece penned by Ms. Kimberly Settle McDonagh, widow of FDNY Lieutenant Edward McDonagh. Ms. McDonagh presents an incomparable perspective on cancer in the fire service.
Funding for the Fire Service Health & Safety Report was provided through the generosity of the DHS/FEMA’s Grant Program Directorate for Assistance to Firefighters Grant Program – Fire Prevention and Safety Grants.
