  • Description

    Help responders recover from emergency operations and training with the latest post-incident rehab methods in the 2015 NFPA 1584.

    Dehydration and electrolyte imbalances due to over exertion are just two of the many risks faced by first responders during emergency ops and training exercises. To protect personnel, departments must follow a systematic and organized approach for rehabilitation during emergency operations and training exercises. Make this process an integral component of both an occupational safety and health program and incident scene management using the 2015 edition of NFPA 1584: Standard on the Rehabilitation Process for Members During Emergency Operations and Training Exercises. Today's Standard reflects current science and knowledge on rehab of fire service members.

    Changes in this edition increase accountability at several levels of command.

    The 2015 NFPA 1584 delineates the responsibilities for the Incident commander, company officer, fire department member, and the rehab manager. This change will help ensure that rehab is being provided and used at emergency operations and training exercises by increasing accountability at different levels of command.

    Ensure your department is prepared to provide personnel with the proper rest, rehydration, and medical monitoring.

    Update to the latest edition of NFPA 1584 to protect the health and safety of emergency responders, so they're ready to protect your community. Annex material shows a sample standard operating procedure for a rehabilitation process, as well as information on the classification, signs, symptoms and treatment of heat stress and cold stress. Emphasis has been placed on fire fighters maintaining proper nutrition, hydration, and a healthy lifestyle prior to emergency operations or training exercises. (Softbound, 28 pp., 2015)
