Synopsis As Introduced
Urges fire departments and other public safety agencies to analyze the culture of their respective department and to ensure a culture is in place that promotes training, communication, and accountability in order to help mitigate the NIOSH 5 from occurring. Urges fire departments to continue to critique their response after fires, to learn from past experiences, and to include in their culture and procedures open discussions about the NIOSH 5, studying NIOSH reports as a crew, and utilization of the Firefighter Near Miss Reporting System. Pledges to support the State's firefighters, fire departments, and public safety agencies in this endeavor. Recognizes that the continued deaths and injuries of our brave firefighters and first responders are a stark reminder of the importance of reiterating the basic concepts of firefighting and that the top five occupational factors distinctly show that a fire department's culture can lead to line-of-duty deaths (LODDs).
