The next meeting of MIFDI will be held on Wednesday, March 27, 2019. We will be hosted once again by the Natick Fire Department, 22 East Central St. (Rt.135) courtesy of MIFDI member Captain Eugene Rothman, Natick Fire Training Officer. MIFDI last met in Natick for our October 2017 meeting.
The training will be provided by Mary Dozois, Supervisor for the Commonwealth of Massachusetts Department of Labor Standards. Mary’s presentation will focus on the recent adoption of National OSHA Regulations and the affect it will have on the fire service. She will address the 4 major topics that OSHA is commonly watchful for within fire departments. As Training and Safety Officers, this is a very important program that we must have knowledge on to address potential issues or violations within our department.
