Download May, 2024 MIFDI Bulletin

The next meeting of MIFDI will be held on Wednesday, May 22, 2024 hosted by the Norwood Fire Department courtesy of Chief Timothy Bailey. We will meet in the first floor training room of Norwood’s Public Safety Building, 135 Nahatan St between Rt. 1 and Rt. 1A. We last met in Norwood for our November 2019 meeting.

The training will be provided by a representative from KONE Elevator with a presentation for the fire service on safely dealing with elevator emergencies. This should be a great review for us all regarding; proper release of the doors, top door-hatch rescue in a blind-shaft, shutting down power, 3502 recall, and lock-out/tag-out procedure.
