Ready for the 2007 International Fire and EMS Safety Stand Down?

The 2007 International Fire and EMS Safety Stand Down will be held during the week of June 17-23, 2007.

This year’s theme is “Ready to Respond.” The Stand Down focuses on proper training, preparation and equipping before a call, and promoting the idea that all members can respond to, and work and return home safely from the emergency they are called to mitigate.
