2024 Safety Stand Down campaign

As reported by the NFPA, the Safety Stand Down Sweepstakes Quiz for 2024 is now live.

The quiz supports this year’s Safety Stand Down campaign, taking place from June 16-22, with a theme of “Fire Training: Back to Basics.” The quiz features questions that reinforce key messages and practices related to effective fire training programs.

The annual Safety Stand Down campaign is organized by the NFPA, the IAFC Safety, Health & Survival Section, the NVFC, the IAFF, and the FDSOA.

The campaign focuses on specific responder safety concerns during the third week of June.

This year’s campaign emphasizes the foundations of fire training to ensure the physical and mental health of firefighters and emergency responders.

Sweepstakes and participation details

Emergency services personnel are encouraged to take and promote the quiz in support of this year’s campaign.

Those who complete the quiz by June 19 at 11:59 p.m. ET will be entered into a sweepstakes.

Two hundred randomly selected participants will win a limited-edition challenge coin commemorating the 2024 theme.

The quiz can be accessed on the Safety Stand Down website.

During the Safety Stand Down week, fire departments across the country are asked to suspend non-emergency activities to focus on fire training fundamentals.

The entire week is dedicated to ensuring all shifts and personnel can participate.

Leading up to the event, fire service leaders and training officers can access resources and training materials on the campaign website.

New content and updates will be added in the coming weeks.
