For Firefighters

Education - Firefighter Health & Safety

Due to the nature of their profession, firefighters are at special risk for burn injury or smoke inhalation. A variety of educational programs focusing on ways to minimize risks and promote good health are available for presentation at your fire department or academy. To arrange a program contact the Burn Education Office at (973) 322-8071.

A Standard Operating Guideline (SOG) helps to ensure proper treatment of a firefighter with burn injures, even a small burn.
