Spring 2016 Seminar 5
Saturday April 9, 2016 9am-1:00 pm., Jefferson Community College
Garrett Loomis Fire Safety & Educational Series 2016
Deputy Chief Dennis Rubin (D.C. Fire Department)
“Incident Scene Safety: Leadership & Accountability”
The fire-rescue service’s exposure risk for death and injury at all types of responses is an exceptional high risk. Within the United States, more than 100 fire fighters die each year in the line of duty. Another, 90,000 American fire fighters will suffer reportable injuries. This incident safety officer’s training course has been developed to help control this unacceptable loss of human life and limb of one of our County’s most important resources, the fire fighter. All members should think in the role of “Incident Safety Officer”, regardless of their rank in the department and will benefit from this training program. This course uses “Rube’s Rules for Survival” as the program textbook.
