Situational Awareness: The Foundation for Good Decision Making

Taking place each year during the third full week of June, Safety Stand Down highlights critical safety, health, and survival issues for fire and emergency services personnel. Departments are asked to suspend all non-emergency activities during the week to focus their attention on safety and health education efforts. A week is provided to ensure that all duty shifts can participate.

The week will be broken down into five daily focus areas to highlight situational awareness during different incident types: structure fires, EMS, wildland incidents, roadway response, and acts of violence. Resources, training videos, and a PowerPoint presentation will be made available prior to the week on the Safety Stand Down web site at to help departments plan for and implement Safety Stand Down strategies.
