FDNY's Commitment to Everyone Goes Home

Thanks to our partners at Fire Department of New York (FDNY) and the National Fallen Firefighters Foundation (NFFF) for the latest video: Still Working...So Everyone Goes Home. There is a lot we can learn from the  efforts FDYN has made since 9/11. Watch the video to see how your unit might benchmark their efforts.

Things to Ponder:
  • Do you have dedicated programs for health and wellness, training, and safety?
  • What are you doing to innovate and improve fireground operations with technological advancements?
  • What training initiatiaves have you implemented to ensure that "Everyone Goes Home"?
  • Have you established a health and wellness program?
  • Are you constanstly trying to improve?
  • Do you view training as a managerial or personal concern?
Leadership side notes: Deputy Assistant Chief Robert Maynes is a member of the L-580 Steering Committee. We appreciate Bob's continued support of leadership development. and care for his people.
