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.

Due to the current health crisis the 34th Firefighter Safety Seminar will not be held in January 2021. The Burn Team plans to resume this educational format the following year!
