The death of a firefighter is a horrific, traumatic event that can leave a family and friends devastated.
As a result, it is not uncommon for some people to choose to not attend funerals.
In fact, in 2016, the New York City Fire Department recorded more than 2,500 firefighter deaths, with the majority of them suicides.
As we mentioned in the previous article, the number of deaths in 2017 was up over the year prior, as well.
With all that said, we wanted to share some tips and advice to help you survive the death of your loved one.1.
Know the Firefighter’s Code of EthicsFirefighters must have a code of ethics and respect for all others.
According to the National Association of Fire Fighters, these are the principles: “As a Fire Officer, I must always uphold the highest ethical standards and adhere to the highest standards of professionalism and ethics.”2.
Do Not Become ConfusedIf you have ever been in a difficult situation, you have probably encountered an experienced firefighter and felt confused.
In addition to the general fear and uncertainty that comes with being a firefighter, there are also the questions that you must ask yourself as you become more familiar with the job:What are the odds that I’m going to die?
Will I be hurt or killed?
Is there a hospital nearby?
What happens if I don’t come back?
Are there other people I could be in danger of being killed?
These are questions that every firefighter must be able to answer.
If you are unable to do so, it could put you in a situation that could result in a life-threatening situation or even death.3.
Get Involved with Firefighters When you become a firefighter you will be expected to be a resource to the community.
While you may not be a firefighter yourself, you can help out by making a donation to a local fire department and being involved in the community through social media, volunteer opportunities or simply doing something that you enjoy.4.
Be There to HelpWhen you are a firefighter and are injured or killed in the line of duty, you should always be there to help, regardless of the circumstance.
This includes getting to the hospital immediately, getting the ambulance to the scene, and making sure that you have access to the medical equipment needed to treat your injuries.
If a firefighter falls into the water, you must help him or her get out of the water and into the ambulance as quickly as possible.
If you are in a high-risk situation, be ready to assist.
This will help you understand what you are about to do, what you need to do to get out safely, and what you should be doing to get yourself out safely.5.
Stay ConnectedWhen you become an ambulance crew member, you will often get calls from your fellow crew members, friends and family members.
If these calls come in, you are more likely to be in a position to receive emergency medical care, which is why it is important to stay connected to them as much as possible and help them get through their difficult times.
If your loved ones need your help, you may find that they can call you and ask if you would be willing to make a donation.
If they do not ask, that means that they are likely thinking of giving a monetary gift to a cause you support.6.
Keep in Touch with Other Ambulance CrewMembers of your own crew will often make sure that they always have your number.
This is a great way to keep in touch with the other members of the crew and will give them an opportunity to give you a heads up on when you are coming into the station and to make sure you know where you are going.7.
Take Care of YourselfWhen you arrive at your first ambulance, you want to be able go into the building without being hurt.
It is important for you to be prepared for your next job and keep a physical and mental log of your body movements, including your weight, blood pressure, temperature, pulse, breathing rate, etc. You should also have a body mass index (BMI) which measures your overall weight in kilograms divided by your height in meters squared.
These numbers can help you determine if you are healthy and able to perform your job properly.
The best way to take care of yourself is to take a physical exam every week.
This helps you to assess the extent of any injuries that you may have sustained and determine whether or not there are any conditions that need to be addressed.
If there are questions about your health, you need your doctor’s advice on whether or the severity of the injuries needs to be further evaluated.
If there are issues that need further investigation, you could ask for an emergency medical technician to evaluate your injuries and determine if they need further treatment.
You may also ask your employer for an ambulance driver.
These types of procedures may be costly to you, but if you can afford it, you probably can.
If not, it will save you
