Utilize the NVFC’s Health and Safety Priorities in Your Department

Wednesday, 07 April 2010

Is your department at its B.E.S.T? Make sure your department is ready to respond to the next call with the National Volunteer Fire Council's (NVFC) Volunteer Firefighter Health and Safety Priorities. Set forth in a series of B.E.S.T. practices for the volunteer fire and emergency services, the priorities are divided into four main focus areas: Behavior, Equipment, Standards, and Training. View the full list of B.E.S.T. practices and adopt them in your department.

The Volunteer Firefighter Health and Safety Priorities were developed by the NVFC’s Health and Safety Committee, established in the spring of 2008 to further the NVFC’s focus on protecting first responders. In 2009, the Committee distributed a poster with the Volunteer Firefighter Health and Safety Priorities to every fire and emergency service department in the country, thanks to the support of Provident Agency. Download the poster to hang up at your station here or order hard copies from the NVFC office at 1-888-ASK-NVFC (275-6832) or This e-mail address is being protected from spambots.
