Safety Stand Down 2020
Taking place each year during the third week of June, Safety Stand Down highlights critical safety, health, and survival issues for the fire and emergency services. Departments and personnel are asked to suspend all non-emergency activities during the week to focus their attention on safety and health education and training. A week is provided to ensure all duty shifts can participate.
The 2020 Safety Stand Down takes place June 14-20. This year’s theme calls attention to the hazards that responders face while performing their duties on roadways. Operating in roadways continues to be some of the most treacherous incident scenes we respond to. This important initiative encourages everyone to refresh their techniques and learn new skills based on research and nationally recognized best practices. Use the resources and training on this site to participate in this year’s Safety Stand Down.
