New Hampshire Fire Service Symposium
November 10, 2015 07:00 to 16:00
Sponsored by Primex
NH Fire Academy - 98 Smokey Bear Boulevard, Concord, NH
The morning topics will include the “Fire Chief’s Role in Hiring, Training and Overall Health Considerations for Fire / EMS Personnel”. Speakers will discuss their department’s policy describing the hiring process for career and volunteer personnel, effective training methodology and the use of NFPA Standard-1582 (Standard On Comprehensive Occupational Medical Program For Fire Departments as a tool for determining fit for duty status and improving overall health of Firefighters / EMS personnel. We are honored to have Dr. Sandy Bogucki, of the NFPA Technical Committee and NFPA 1582 Task Group Chair, who will present the vital importance of the Standard and implications for Fire Department implementation.
The afternoon will focus on “Community Events – Are You Ready”? We will “debrief” the 2014 Keene Pumpkin Festival and have representatives from agencies that responded. Symposium attendees will hear harrowing accounts of how the event evolved and the coordinated multi-agency response that finally quelled the violence. An event of this magnitude could occur in any community and the presentation will provide valuable insight to First Responders. Topics such as Pre-planning, Initial Response and Size Up, Mutual Aid, Unified Command, Emergency Operations Centers, Information Dissemination, and the Financial Impacts on affected communities will be discussed.
At the conclusion of the symposium, each agency represented will receive a “free copy” of NFPA Standard 1582 for their reference.
