As fire fighters, we know that PPE is only effective when it is used properly. That’s why we wear our masks, not just on emergency runs but everywhere it can help keep us, our families and our communities safe. As part of the IAFF Mask Up Campaign, we are encouraging members to share photos of themselves wearing masks while on duty, or use an infographic below, to promote the use of masks in all fire departments to slow the spread of COVID-19.
