The most important aspect of all this Firefighter Safety stuff I’ve been spouting this past month is YOU! Y-O-U! YOU! No, I’m not saying that you should be selfish, thinking only of yourself (not that I see that as a problem – everything I’ve seen shows huge/selfless hearts & awesome sense of of humor….) I’m saying that you need to make sure you are taking care of yourself and that your being as safe as it is possible to be. Your no good to anyone else if you don’t. Make sure you are taking care of all aspects of your health. We all know that Physical Health & Fitness is an important aspect to the safety of a firefighter, but Mental and Emotional health are just as important. Make sure your keeping yourself safe and using all necessary Gear and PPE. Be Game Ready Every Call Every Time (You can’t help anyone else if you become a victim yourself.
Remember: YOU are Important and STAYSAFE!!!
