Drill #150: Incident Safety Officer
One of the most important positions within the Command Staff is that of the Safety Officer. Readers will learn how fire departments make the determination as to who will fulfill the position of Incident Safety Officer.
The drill is designed to be a single page of information to conjure up discussions among your crew members. Sit down and talk about the exercises, and how they may apply to your company. But, just don't read them. Get moving. Head to an appropriate area and train.
Post the information in prominent places in your stations so it's readily available for review.
Please remember to check your Standard Operating Procedures or Guidelines (SOPs/SOGs) before using the drill.
