This project would continue to and enhance the support and advocacy for the need of a culture change in the fire service - incorporating organizational leadership and personal responsibility. The IAFC and their (IAFC) Safety, Health, and Survival (SHS) Section have a long history of performing successful complex fire service health and safety studies for both the USFA and the fire service in general, including the FY 2012 Study of Behavioral Motivation on Reduction of Risk Taking Behaviors of which this FY 2014 National Safety Culture Change Initiative Study is based on which makes them uniquely qualified.

Because of this broad outreach, the IAFC SHS has the ability to implement the findings of this project and develop support and advocacy for the need of a culture change in the fire service through organizational leadership and personal responsibility. IAFC SHS members serve on many national-level consensus standards committees in numerous areas involving firefighter and EMS responder health and safety. The SHS organizational and memberships experience and knowledge related to this topic will be utilized and incorporated into this project. Other organizations would not be able to develop the involvement and support of the IAFC SHS Section. Additionally, the IAFC will establish a dedicated section on the National Safety Culture Change Initiative for the Fire Service on their website that will greatly expand the outreach of its new findings, which is an integral part of this study. This IAFC website is well known and utilized among the fire and emergency services community to access information on fire service operational safety. The IAFC would not allow any other organization(s) access to the site. as a result of the study the IAFC will provide outreach of the results at IAFC-sponsored national level fire service leadership conferences, including Fire Rescue International as well as other proprietary fire service resources administered by their organization. Because of their long term reputation to the fire service, the IAFC would not support or endorse such outreach performed by other entities at their proprietary conference. All of this organizational and staff history related to conducting complex fire service health and safety studies, especially those targeted for fire service leadership, will benefit this study. The contractor must be able to meet core capabilities required for this requirement as follows: • Expertise in conducting complex fire service health and safety studies for local fire departments at the national level, especially those targeted for fire service leadership and change of the safety culture in the fire service; • Promote and provide national level leadership education and training for local level fire departments; • Gather applicable information from and disseminate information to fire service leadership of fire departments from the United States Fire Administration (USFA), Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS); • Serve as the voice and advocate for fire service leadership in the national arena and provide tools, resources, and programs in health and safety for fire and EMS departments and responders; • Conduct research, develop training, collect information and distribute that information which has an impact on health and safety for fire chiefs, firefighters, and EMS responders, including linkage to and utilization the resources of the IAFC's Safety, Health, and Survival Section, as well as national level fire service leadership conferences including the IAFC's Fire Rescue International. • Experience with performance of successfully conducting complex fire service health and safety studies for local fire departments at the national level, especially those targeted for fire service leadership and change of the safety culture in the fire service, for both the USFA and the fire service in general; • Existing mechanism to deliver outreach, information, and training targeted toward fire service leadership and the fire services, specifically utilizing the resources of the IAFC's Safety, Health, and Survival Section, as well as national level fire service leadership conferences including the IAFC's Fire Rescue International; • Experience with the development and delivery of national level materials targeted specifically for fire service leadership related to changing the culture of the fire service at all levels.

Optical Radiation Bioeffects and Safety (ORBS)

Department of the Air Force, Air Force Materiel Command | Published April 26, 2013  -  Deadline June 11, 2013
cpvs

The Air Force Research Laboratory's (AFRL) Directed Energy Division, Optical Radiation Bioeffects Branch (711 HPW/RHDO) is unique in the Department of Defense because it brings together in one organization the physical, biological, behavioral science and engineering disciplines with specialized facilities to address most aspects of the human response with optical sources in Air Force combat operations. Due to this laboratory's focus on man as an intrinsic part of the weapon system, the laboratory is often tasked from other customers to evaluate the human aspects of their systems. Collaboration through Optical Radiation Bioeffects and Safety (ORBS) contract, AFRL must respond with technical solutions and programs that address the customer's technical requirements. Optical radiation technologies, with potentially serious hazards to aircrews, are being incorporated in many operational systems. Beyond today's target designator, rangefinder, and beam-rider systems are dedicated laser systems capable of jamming and damaging both eyes and sensors. These systems have potential serious consequences for air missions, special forces operations, and security of high-value targets in both US and allied countries. In turn, similar systems can be utilized to enhance the warfighters'/peacekeepers' flexibility by allowing them to respond with non-lethal methods. In conjunction with the ORBS contract, 711 HPW/RHDO and Project Reliance Units (Army Medical Research Detachment and Naval Medical Research Unit) perform basic research, exploratory and advanced development, and evaluation of protection to understand, mitigate, and exploit effects of optical radiation (ultraviolet, visible, infrared) devices and their countermeasures on DoD personnel and aerospace missions. 711 HPW/RHDO conducts research that advances the state of the art in understanding the interactions of optical radiation with biological systems; provides safety and protection consultation services to operational units and acquisition offices; establishes design specifications for systems developers; develops, and transitions personnel protection devices for occupational, and operational applications; and extends DoD capabilities in modeling and simulation of personnel susceptibility and mission planning involving directed energy (DE) weapons. Our Project Reliance colleagues explore technologies for: diagnosis and treatment of combat injuries due to optical radiation; improved methods of combat casualty care, including triage, diagnosis and treatment; and simulating laser injury to assess mission performance. Finally, 711 HPW/RHDO recommends new DoD and national safety standards for both laser and broadband sources, and participates in the creation and review of optical radiation safety standards (for both laser and broadband sources). See BAA Solicitation and Attachments for the Technical Areas and details for this effort . Also, note in the BAA solicitation, the due date and time proposals are due at both locations at their local time, Wright-Patterson AFB OH, and Ft Sam Houston TX.

Description: "NHTSA Regions 6 Media Contract" Objective: The objective of these Contracts is to provide professional communication support for NHTSA Regional Office in Region 6, consisting of the following states: Louisiana, Mississippi, New Mexico, Oklahoma, Texas, and the Indian Nations, to support seat belt and impaired driving program efforts as well as other priority highway safety programs. Background: The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) is an agency within the U.S. Department of Transportation whose primary mission is to reduce deaths, injuries and economic losses resulting from motor vehicle crashes. This is accomplished by: •Setting and enforcing national safety performance standards for motor vehicles and equipment; •Providing grants to state and local governments to enable them to conduct effective local highway safety programs; •Marketing and promoting safety messages, campaigns and materials to various audiences aimed at raising awareness and influencing and sustaining positive traffic safety behaviors. Research has demonstrated that increasing safety belts and preventing impaired driving is the most effective means to meet NHTSA's core mission. NHTSA estimates that increasing safety belts use can reduce crash fatalities by up to 45 percent in cars and 60 percent in light trucks. Every one percent increase in safety belt use translates into 2.8 million more Americans buckled up, 250 additional lives saved and 4,000 fewer serious injuries annually. Impaired driving-related deaths account for 42 percent of all traffic fatalities annually. Driving impaired is one of the most often committed crimes in America, affecting 1 in 3 citizens annually, resulting in 1 fatality every 30 minutes, 45 deaths every day and more than 13,000 fatalities annually. Based on ten (10) plus years of research, NHTSA and its partners have determined that conducting traffic enforcement with highly visible publicity and advertising is the most effective way to influence audiences to buckle up and deter impaired driving. NHTSA's national communications plan supports the agency's policy and program priorities. High Visibility Enforcement for safety belt use and impaired driving prevention is the cornerstone of the national plan. NHTSA recommends that States and local communities also implement HVE as the foundation of their communications efforts and build around their key enforcement periods. Based on numerous years of experience working at the national and state levels, NHTSA has developed recommendations for communications strategy and tactical plans for state and local partners to effectively promote traffic safety year round. Contract Awards: This contract will have a total possible performance period of five (5) years. This includes a base period of one (1) year with four one (1) year option periods.
