Hazards to firefighters on the fireground have changed in the past 30 years as households contain more furnishings made of plastics and synthetic materials. These not only increase the speed of the fire but also create much more dangerous smoke and gases, exposing firefighters to even more related health issues. The National Volunteer Fire Council (NVFC) is hosting a webinar focusing on the Illinois Fire Safety Institute’s (ISFS) recent research on cardiovascular and chemical exposure risk. It will give an overview of recent studies conducted at IFSI Research, the National Institute of Occupational Safety and Health, and Underwriters Laboratories and focus on some leading health risks on today’s fireground and training ground. This webinar will describe studies and initial results, such as the “Interim Report: Cardiovascular and Chemical Exposure Risks in Modern Firefighting” (PDF, 6.69 Mb).

Semmes Firefighters Past, Present & Future
By now you have heard much discussion regarding the Semmes Firefighters. We have been discussed politically, used as a bargaining chip and most recently used to strike fear in the citizens of Semmes. Let me be clear. We will not abandon Semmes nor will we stop giving our best. We will continue to do what we have been doing for the last several years which is providing fire and medical protection.
