Dear FireRescue1 Member,
In recent months, first responders have been on the front lines, not only of the pandemic but the face mask debate as well.
We surveyed first responders about their mask-wearing habits, on- and off-duty, plus fire departments’ related policies.
First responders seek
balance between inconsistent policies and personal preference
divided over mask effectiveness
and resistant of being mask-usage ‘enforcers’
Review the survey results and discuss the key takeaways with your crew.
Be safe and take care.
