Resolution Supporting Firefighter Safety

WHEREAS, each year in the United States the fire service loses approximately one hundred firefighters in the line of duty; and,

WHEREAS, annually in the United States there are over eighty thousand reported injuries to firefighters; and,

WHEREAS, one of the primary goals of the North Carolina State Firemen’s Association is to ensure the safety, health, survival, and well being of all North Carolina firefighters; and,

WHEREAS, the National Volunteer Fire Council, the International Association of Fire Chiefs Safety Health and Survival Section, and the National Fallen Firefighters Foundation have developed firefighter safety initiative programs; and,

WHEREAS, these specific programs are the National Volunteer Fire Council B.E.S.T. Program, the International Association of Fire Chiefs Safety Health and Survival Section Rules of Engagement for Firefighter Survival, as well as the Incident Commander’s Rules of Engagement, and the National Fallen Firefighters Foundation Sixteen Firefighter Life Safety Initiatives; and,

WHEREAS, through these programs firefighter line of duty deaths and firefighter injuries will decline; and,

WHEREAS, the North Carolina State Firemen’s Association along with other North Carolina fire service organizations and partners will promote these three firefighter safety initiative programs; and,

NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED that the North Carolina State Firemen’s Association supports the above firefighter safety initiative programs and will promote them by whatever means necessary in an effort to reduce firefighter line of duty deaths and firefighter injuries.

Resolution Supporting Available Technology for the Purpose of Reducing Fire Loss and Personal Injury from Stovetop Cooking Fires

WHEREAS: Cooking equipment is the leading cause of residential fires and home fire injuries in the United States; and

WHEREAS: Unattended cooking is the leading factor contributing to cooking fires; and

WHEREAS: Electric ranges are the leading type of cooking equipment involved in these fires; and

WHEREAS: Unattended cooking and combustibles too close to the cooking surface, such as towels, paper products, etc., are major contributing factors to these fires; and

WHEREAS: Cooking fires are the leading cause of home fire injuries, these fires accounted for 40% of all reported home structure fires and 36% of home civilian injuries; and

WHEREAS: Education and code enforcement alone have not yielded the desired results when it comes to eliminating cooking fires; and

WHEREAS: Tested affordable technology for electric coil ranges now exists to drastically reduce the number of these fires and burned food incidents by reducing the high end temperature at which burners operate with no appreciable difference in cooking times or quality; and

WHEREAS: High-end heat regulation technology currently available can reduce the amount of energy used by the range by as much as 50%;

NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED: That the North Carolina State Firemen’s Association supports this cooking “fire prevention” technology and further supports a modification of state and federal agency regulations to allow for this new fire safety technology to be utilized and will promote it by whatever means necessary in an effort to reduce or eliminate stovetop cooking fires.
