NFPA 1584: Standard on the Rehabilitation Process for Members During Emergency Operations and Training Exercises, 2008 Edition
|Item # 158408|
Keep emergency responders ready for action by implementing the latest safeguards for incident scene rehab as defined by the 2008 NFPA 1584.
An organized approach for fire department members' rehabilitation during emergency operations and training exercises should be an integral component of both an occupational safety and health program and incident scene management. The 2008 edition of NFPA 1584: Standard on the Rehabilitation Process for Members During Emergency Operations and Training Exercises completely revises the document to reflect current science and knowledge on rehab of fire service members and upgrades the document from a recommended practice to a standard.
Changes in this edition that improve protection of firefighters include:
- New requirements have been added for medical monitoring during rehabilitation with a lengthy discussion in the Annex and the recognition that vital signs alone cannot be used to determine if a firefighter entering or in rehabilitation should receive further medical treatment.
- Updated terminology is compatible with the National Incident Management System (NIMS).
- Revised definitions ensure standardization between the seven health and safety standards the committee is responsible for.
- Annex material was added to show a sample standard operating procedure for a rehabilitation process, and to show 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.
Order today to ensure you're prepared to provide the proper rest, rehydration, and medical monitoring to safeguard emergency responders at incident scenes and during training. (Softbound, 26 pp., 2008)
