Public Comment Time for NFPA 1006

NFPA 1006 – Standard for Technical Rescuer Professional Qualifications has started the revision cycle process for the 2018 edition.  This standard is important to the rescue community as it helps guide the training and certification process, and ultimately lead to better trained rescue personnel.

Currently the public comment period is open through January 5, 2015, and if you are not aware, the new process through NFPA for developing/revising standards is if you do not comment on the first cycle then you cannot comment throughout the rest of the cycle process.

Every rescuer should take the time to review the standard and I strongly encourage you to comment now if you wish to recommend a change within a standard.

Comments can be submitted on-line.
