During IAFF Safety Stand Down Week, we recognize the important work our members do in communities throughout the United States and Canada. The COVID-19 pandemic has challenged our members on the frontlines and compounds the ever-present hazards of our noble profession.
We encourage IAFF affiliates to highlight the role our members serve in communities using the resources and materials we’ve developed for IAFF Safety Stand Down Week, including social media graphics, suggested posts and more.
We will focus on the following topics during IAFF Safety Stand Down Week:
- Sunday– Member Recognition and Appreciation Day
- Monday– Traffic Incident Management
- Tuesday– Physical Activity and Nutrition
- Wednesday – Personal Protective Equipment (PPE)
- Thursday – Civil Unrest/Assaults/Provider Safety
- Friday – Behavioral Health
We encourage affiliates to use IAFF Safety Stand Down Week as an opportunity to recognize the services and sacrifices of our members and to further raise public awareness of the critical role our members serve in the community.
