Defend firefighters' breathing apparatus safety procedures
Dead or injured firefighters can't rescue anyone.
Breathing apparatus (BA) safety procedures are borne from the death and injury of firefighters. They’ve been in place, helping to keep firefighters safe and alive, for decades. They are vital to firefighter safety.
The National Fire Chiefs Council’s (NFCC) is attempting to rip up and remove BA safety in high rise building fires and deploy firefighters without safe air. This is unsafe, unlawful and unprofessional. It risks the lives of both firefighters and the public.
We're calling on them to abandon this dangerous policy.
