UFA Safety Message #12 Seat Belts
UFA Health and Safety Officer / Sergeant-at-Arms Bill Romaka wishes to remind the Membership to take their safety responsibilities seriously at all times. We will continue to highlight and remind our members of "safe actions" as spelled out by the Department. Stay well, and stay safe!
The FDNY Safety Bulletin #6, "Precautions to Ensure a Safe Response to Alarms" states the following:
3.2 Considerations For a Safe Response From Quarters:
4 From Outside Activities:
*Have your Officer notify the Shops should you have any problems with the seatbelts. Additionally, caution needs to be taken when operating in a tower ladder bucket. Due to possible mechanical problems, members should always remember to be belted in.
**Please refer to the full Safety Bulletin #6 and familiarize yourself with its content. Also, please take the time to review previous Safety Messages as safety continues to be an on-going and top priority.
