In March 2004, the National Fallen Firefighters Foundation put together their 16 Firefighter Life Safety Initiatives - Everyone Goes Home program, as part of their Courage to be Safe initiative. It was created to ensure the safety, and long lives, of all fire protection personnel.
On Oct. 20, 2010 the Texas Commission on Fire Protection adopted this initiative and has required all certified fire protection personnel to complete this program by Dec. 1, 2015 (See 435.25). We believe this program will save lives and we want you to make these practices a priority in your departments.
