Lubbock Fire Department Stands Down For Safety

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.

Making a Kit for an Emergency Situation
When preparing for a possible emergency situation, it's best to think first about the basics of survival: fresh water, food, clean air and warmth.
