Hey ARFF Working Group Family.

Barb had sent out a constant contact survey by our friend, Dr. Todd D. Smith, a professor in the area of safety management at Indiana University.

I know we all are busy, but if you could take 15-20 min and click the link below, it would mean a lot to them as well as us. Everything we can do to help with safety and those studies deemed at what we do is invaluable.

Currently we have 50 plus surveys done but I know we can do more. This organization always steps up, let’s get a great return to them so the results can be passed down and possible help us at our own departments.

Thanks again and stay safe everyone.

Please complete the survey before April 16, 2021. Your willingness to participate is greatly appreciated. We believe this research will benefit the fire service community and its stakeholders and will help protect the health and wellbeing of firefighters. Should you have any questions, you can contact me at smithtod@indiana.edu.
