Dear FireRescue1 Member,

As extreme weather events continue to impact communities throughout the country, escalating fire department response efforts, it is up to fire service leaders like you to develop plans for operational readiness and response.

As such, in addition to today’s regular lineup of Fire Chief-focused content, we encourage you to review our latest special coverage series, Risks and Impact of Climate Change on the Fire Service. The articles share strategies that can help your department prioritize these emerging threats so you will be better prepared to serve your community while keeping your members safe.
