Fire departments around the country are encouraged to suspend all non-emergency activity during the 2011 Safety Week, and instead, focus entirely on safety, health and wellness-related training and education until all shifts and personnel have taken part.  An entire week is provided to ensure each shift and duty crew can spend AT LEAST one day focusing on these critical issues.

During the week of June 19-25, 2011, members should focus their training time on this year's theme:
Surviving the Fire Ground and Fire Fighter, Fire Officer, & Command Preparedness.
