The International Association of Fire Chiefs (IAFC) and the National Volunteer Fire Council (NVFC) are pleased to announce that the 2013 International Fire/EMS Safety and Health Week will be held the week of June 16-22, 2013.

As in past years, Safety and Health Week 2013 will be a collaborative effort of the fire and emergency service agencies across the nation as part of the grassroots effort to promote the event and have a positive impact on all fire/EMS personnel. We invite you to participate again this year because your involvement is critical to Safety and Health Week’s success.

 Saving Our Own: An Inside Job – This year’s effort will capture the importance of responders looking out for their own and each other’s mental and physical well-being. This year’s tag line, Saving Our Own…An Inside Job, reflects the focus on the theme of behavioral health and the understanding that the most important factor in improving responder health and safety is other responders.
