This week, the Lubbock Fire Department is calling attention to emergency vehicle safety. They call it the Fire Fighter Safety Stand Down.
The Lubbock Fire Department is suspending all non-emergency activity for the week. They will take a closer look at safety by focusing on seatbelt use and safe driving. They will conduct safety drills, procedure review, and a thorough check of all equipment.
You may recall, a Panhandle volunteer firefighter died on the job, in April. James Wilson McMorries Junior died from injuries received when a fire truck overturned while en route to a wildfire. This week's Safety Stand Down aims to prevent further tragedies like this one.
