Dear FireRescue1 Member,

Acts of violence during active shooter events and, more recently, civil unrest have put firefighters on the front lines of dangerous confrontations.

To help firefighters stay safe in an ever-dynamic environment, today we launch our series “Mass Violence: Enhanced Training for Emerging Threats,” covering key topics:
  • Crisis leadership
  • Tactical fire teams
  • Fire as a weapon
… and more

Plus: Don’t miss Gordon Graham’s video on tactical withdrawal.

Review these articles with your crewmembers so they know what to do if faced with violence.
