6 Minutes for Safety is a tool created for and by fire personnel with the purpose of actively troubleshooting known high risk situations encountered on the fireline.
These discussions offer baseline information that a crew, group or unit can use in many settings including incident safety briefings, tailgate safety briefings, morning briefings for example, to tailor to their specific setting, generate effective discussions, and develop critical thinking skills, awareness, and meaningful learning opportunities. Continual feedback, interaction and communication with the field will be of utmost importance to maintain the quality, accuracy, relevance and timeliness of the discussion topics.
The NWCG Leadership Subcommittee has developed LEAD Time additions for 6 Minutes for Safety as a developmental tool for wildland firefighters.
