You must leave nothing to chance. Many have been the incidents during the past winter when fire and EMS personnel have been struck and injured all across the nation. Some have been killed. I am suggesting that training, education, equipment, and enforcement are the way to go.
Safety does not just happen. It never has and it never will. I strongly suggest that you must work in concert with your team to make it a part of your operation so that everyone will return safely at the end of the operation.
