ABSTRACT

Protecting Yourself While Responding to Wildfires: Safety and Health Awareness for Responders to Wildfires [presentation]   [open pdf - 2MB]

"This training tool is an awareness-level health and safety resource for 'skilled support personnel' who will participate in a wildfire assessment and cleanup. This tool will help workers understand at an awareness level: characteristics of what a wildfire and a wildfire response is and how to protect against and control hazards associated with the response, [and] assessment and cleanup activities associated with a wildfire. Trainers may use this tool to aid in the development of a wildfire awareness level course or other awareness level materials (fact-sheets, table-top activities, etc.)."
