Tomorrow marks the 10th anniversary of the cold storage warehouse fire in Worcester, Massachusetts, where six firefighters died searching for reported victims.

In honor of the Worcester firefighters, and all other men and women who have lost their lives in the line of duty, the National Fire Academy today offers a new Coffee Break Training special feature: Coffee Break Training - Special Blend.  Throughout the year, on the anniversary of multiple firefighter fatality events, we will publish a special Coffee Break Training to recognize their sacrifices and provide tips to prevent a reoccurence of the tragedy.

So tomorrow, to honor those six firefighters, why not take the tips from this Special Blend and make some improvements in your community that will make all first responders safer?  The Special Blend can be found at 

Thanks, also, to Ron Kanterman of the National Fire Academy Alumni Association for suggesting the name "Special Blend."


The United States Fire Administration recommends everyone should have a comprehensive fire protection plan that includes smoke alarms, residential sprinklers, and practicing a home fire escape plan.
