From Bob Kunz:

Team SAFER,

OSHA 29 CFR 1910.38 (General Industry) and 29 CFR 1926.35 (Construction) outline requirements for emergency action plans. The Providence Fire Department provides for the protection of human life and property from fire and other disasters, either natural or man-made, through fire safety education, the development, and enforcement of fire codes, provision of emergency medical services and suppression of fire, for example.

The staff and partners at your facility and or construction project may have knowledge and equipment that may be critical to protect the lives of the responders, required for the successful rescue of workers and mitigation of property loss including adjacencies. So how do you fit in…..

Please join us for an informative discussion concerning National Incident Management System (NIMS) including without limitation unified command.

Mike Dillon (retired Chief PFD) is the guest speaker.

See you on Wednesday morning.

Regards,

February’s Meeting at NEIT – Feb 7, 2018

This Wednesday, Feb 7th,  we will be tackling a difficult subject.  A subject that requires all of our attention and understanding.  Together, we can make a difference.  On Wednesday, Mr. Travis Vendetti from the RI Department of Health Violence & Injury Prevention Program along with 2 clinical social workers will be providing QPR training.

QPR stands for Question, Persuade, and Refer — the 3 simple steps anyone can learn to help save a life from suicide.

Just as people trained in CPR and the Heimlich Maneuver help save thousands of lives each year, people trained in QPR learn how to recognize the warning signs of a suicide crisis and how to question, persuade, and refer someone to help. Each year thousands of Americans, like you, are saying “Yes” to saving the life of a friend, colleague, sibling, or neighbor.

Each of you will be provided with takeaway materials and kit to take with and use at their company, etc.

The sooner we get the word out the better.

The meeting will be held from 8-10 am in the Hall of Fame Room at the New England Institute for Technology, 2490 Post Road, Warwick, RI 02886.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact myself.
