Recall Notification

HeartStart MRx Defibrillator by Philips Electronics: Class I Recall

Defects in Gas Discharge Tubes May Cause Device Failure. Philips is recalling the HeartStart MRx Defibrillator due to a defect in the device's Gas Discharge Tube (GDT). The GDT has micro cracks which allows internal gasses to escape and causes the tubes to not function as expected. This also permits an electrical current surge to cross the device's designated resistors, which will damage the resistors and prevent the device from working while in automated external defibrillator (AED) mode.

Webinar: Structural Firefighters Line of Duty Deaths

The Facts, The Lessons, The Future

Perhaps no event is more high-risk, low-frequency than when operations start to go wrong at a structure fire. And each time we lose a firefighter at a structure fire, we have an opportunity-and an obligation-to study what went wrong.

In this webinar, Deputy Chief Billy Goldfeder will moderate a discussion with three fire chiefs leading departments that experienced structure fire LODDs at structure fires. These leaders will share the specifics of the incident, details from the post-incident analysis, and the changes they're making to help prevent a similar incident from recurring.

You will learn:

  • Lessons from three structural fire incidents where firefighters were killed.
  • Leadership and organizational changes to address the root causes of firefighter LODDs (Line Of Duty Deaths).
  • 3 common factors contributing to structural firefighter LODDs and how to combat them.

Please visit their website for all the details and to register for the webinar:
