该COVID-19大流行礼物给县市政府新经济的挑战。消防部门很可能会影响地方政府与支出冻结,冻结招聘和削减开支的经济衰退回应。一些地方政府都希望从国家和/或联邦级的帮助。

虽然一些国家的政府有“雨天基金”,解决经济衰退,不是所有的人做的。此外,在当前经济危机的严重程度可能超过我们最担心的事情。建议削减预算对一些消防和EMS部门都在10%至25%的范围内。随着新财年始于七月,许多地方政府都需要由6月30日批准了明年的消费计划。

公共安全机构

虽然公众安全机构在历史上一直由当地政府在经济衰退的保护,目前的经济衰退的严重程度可能会改变做法。较低的营业税征收预计将产生重大影响,但对收入水平的实际信息滞后了三个月,因为州政府收取的税收,然后A股回归市县。

南加州城市就像美国各地的许多人依赖于销售税和酒店税

在赫米特消防部门正在影响。去年,我市在加班费支付$ 1百万。紧缩开支今年将消除这种支出。该市还可能会耽误一些填充未平仓合约将取代只有一个老化的消防车,而不是两个。他们将购买较少的安全性和无线电装备。维多利亚州,得克萨斯州,是其中很多人觉得另一个城市的销售损失税收收入的影响。

消防战士工会

“这不是人们没有得到他们的垃圾捡起一个选项,”维多利亚城市经理耶稣加尔萨告诉维多利亚提倡。“这不是我们的警察和消防队员到不行的选择。”还看不到明确的结束,有没有简单的解决方案。某些情况下,如冻薪,会影响消防员工会的成员。消防战士巴尔的摩国际协会的主席当地734说,这种讨论还为时过早。

我们知道这个城市在7月份之前平衡自己的预算和每个人都被这种全球性流行病”重创

“我们知道这个城市在7月份之前平衡自己的预算和每个人都被这种全球性流行病的重创,”当地消防队员工会主席理查德·阿尔提里二世(Richard Altieri II)告诉《巴尔的摩太阳报》(Baltimore Sun)。“但是,建议我们的会员,每天谁是前线的这种牺牲,是不可接受的,令人沮丧。”巴尔的摩审议关于可能影响第一反应总减排量$ 1100万美元。

在对消防行业其他方面的影响,该COVID-19全球大流行已严重破坏了行业贸易展览会日程,一些重大活动取消,其他延迟。还有在2020年计划在以后的几个事件 - 交叉手指!在四月取消FDIC国际展在印第安纳波利斯之后,歌乐活动正在规划一个新的事件,美国消防会议,9月22-24日,在印第安纳州会议中心。在“身临其境”事件将使国际社会火一起讨论关键主题各地及时和关键议题,包括传染病,感染控制,危害混纺的任务,并为将来做准备。Extensive outreach and conversations “During the FDIC team’s extensive outreach and conversations with the fire service, there was an overwhelming desire expressed by firefighters to come together in the fall to celebrate the unity of the fire service, learn and support ongoing efforts in serving their communities and continue training,” according to a statement from Clarion Events. “At this point it is nearly impossible to predict the status of the pandemic in September; however, we are currently proceeding with plans for the conference,” says Clarion Events. In any case, FDIC International 2021 is still being planned April 19-24, 2021, at the Indiana Convention Center and Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis. Utmost concern for wellbeing We have been listening to our stakeholders, some of whom asked us to not hold the event" Also cancelled was the NFPA Conference & Expo in June 2020 in Orlando. “We have been listening to our stakeholders, some of whom asked us to not hold the event and other who encouraged us to move forward.” However, after “Great thought and with the utmost concern for everyone’s wellbeing,” the event was cancelled. Some NFPA (National Fire Protection Association) activities that occur during the event, such as the Association’s Annual Meeting, Election of directors to the board, and the Codes and Standards Technical Meeting, are being facilitated remotely.

为什么消防安全必须成为优先级当企业重新开放
为什么消防安全必须成为优先级当企业重新开放

随着许多企业和设施重新开放下的冠状病毒锁定的网站,消防安全似乎不是很高列表中其他的顾虑和责任上。但在这里,小敏鲍登,消防业务发展经理COMELIT英国集团,由消防行业机构的领导,说明了为什么它必须是一个优先事项,确保安装的系统是通过最佳实践按照发展导向,保持防火措施并定期测试,以确保合规性。消防安全经常被人忽视。And in the midst of returning to work and implementing necessary fever screening solutions and social distancing policies, it may even fall further down the necessary requirements, for businesses who are naturally eager to open and ‘get going.’ Providing Fire Safety But the Government and leading authoritative fire industry bodies have made it absolutely clear that, “Coronavirus is not an excuse for disregarding your responsibilities and businesses must ensure that they have an adequate amount of competent people to help in the implementation of both preventative and protective fire safety measures.” Above all else, fire detection is there to save lives; but the way in which systems are presented, will depend on their surroundings. For many facilities it involves more than the best choice of products and services. It also requires compliance to standards, currently changing in light of the Grenfell Tower Inquiry, and a need to consider the environment that it serves to keep safe. fire detection technology It is crucial that buildings are fitted with the highest quality life safety systems to ensure ultra-reliable protection Style of a fire detection system would be considered a priority for a hospitality environment, including hotel and restaurant facilities, to blend with the aesthetics and not impact on the ambience created. In any leisure facilities such as a Gym, it is essential fire detection measures and systems are in place that will provide customers, employees and the premises itself, with sufficient prevention against fire at all times. To keep up with demand, a system needs to be simple to install and operational as quickly as possible for the benefit of members and staff. However, a manufacturing vicinity will require latest fire detection technology to ensure the safety of its building, its specialist products and all personnel who operate on site. Similarly, an art studio is a specialist consideration when it comes to fire safety, especially with the use of different materials and substances in every day works by the artists on site. ensure ultra-Reliable protection Both temporary and permanent healthcare facilities in this period have undoubtedly been key to fighting the Coronavirus pandemic, and experienced an expediential increased demand for patient care. With more people to treat and protect, those working or residing within these spaces have to be considered at greater risk in the event of a fire emergency. It is crucial that these buildings have been and continue to be fitted with the highest quality life safety systems to ensure ultra-reliable protection. And the same is true for care homes, a vulnerable group in the fight against coronavirus. They require critical and reliable, functioning fire detection equipment that presents high performance protection, avoiding false alarms to prevent moving elderly residents unnecessarily. In each of these scenarios, the need to act quickly is paramount. Fire Detection Operations Fire safety must be kept a priority to ensure a return to work can occur seamlessly and successfully In healthcare, immediacy is a common theme through the industry, be it providing treatment or responding to a patient’s symptoms. This is no different in fire safety, with detection systems requiring an ease of use, by anyone operating on site. In businesses returning to work ‘post-lockdown’ the appointed Fire Marshalls and responsible persons may not be the ones returning to office locations, so others need to be trained with simple to operate solutions. In summary, fire safety must be kept a priority, arguably now more than ever to ensure a return to work can occur seamlessly and successfully, and with an obligation of care to workers coming back to operating establishments. By understanding these environments and choosing systems accordingly, duty holders can ensure they reduce risks across their premises and maintain a safe ‘new normal’. multi-Sensor detectors Comelit presents its FIA accredited family of ATENA and ERACLE fire detection and fire alarm systems, which offers a diverse portfolio of intelligent, addressable products that are feature-rich, easy to install, simple to operate and offer incomparable reliability.

国际消防协会酋长请求例外启用志愿消防部门领取EIDL基金
国际消防协会酋长请求例外启用志愿消防部门领取EIDL基金

志愿消防部门没有资格从经济伤害灾难贷款(EIDL)项目获得资金,因为他们依赖于宾果游戏和莱佛士的筹款。由于COVID-19危机摧毁了志愿部门筹集资金的能力,在经济危机时期,利用EIDL方案可以提供所需的援助。根据目前的规则,这种援助是不可用的。经济灾难伤害贷款计划美国小企业管理局(SBA)实现EIDL程序支持私人实体饱受金融COVID-19流感大流行的影响,政府机构认为实体(如志愿消防部门)没有得到援助如果他们收到超过三分之一的收入来自法律游戏,国税局的解释包括宾果游戏和莱佛士。根据国际消防长官协会(IAFC)的说法,“虽然这一决定可能不是为了阻止志愿消防部门接受这一关键援助,但许多受影响最严重的私营非营利消防部门无法请求他们迫切需要的援助。”在一封信中,IAFC敦促SBA调整EIDL援助计划,以便为私营非营利性消防部门提供更多的财政援助。实际上,消防长官协会正在要求该机构豁免自愿消防部门,根据《国内税收法典》(IRC)第501(C)条,对合法的赌博收入进行限制。“史无前例的经济衰退和留在国内的命令已经摧毁了这些机构满足其筹款需求的能力,”信中说,并补充道,“IAFC敦促SBA放弃这一要求,并支持私营非营利消防部门的工作,以响应紧急服务的呼吁。根据美国消防管理局(USFA)的数据,70%的美国消防部门完全依靠志愿人员来应对紧急情况。这些机构位于税基有限的农村社区,依靠社区支持维持其运作。EIDL计划是一个支持私营实体应对COVID-19大流行的金融影响的机制。 In late April 2020, the U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA) published an interim rule to waive the cap on legal gaming revenues for public entities seeking assistance through the Paycheck Protection Program. However, this change does not impact fire departments that utilize volunteers and own their property outright. Economic Injury Disaster Loan facility “The IAFC fears that these private non-profit fire departments may be unable to maintain their emergency response operations if a similar exemption is not also made for the EIDL program,” the letter further adds. In response to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, small business owners and organizations in all U.S. States, Washington D.C., and overseas US territories are able to apply for an Economic Injury Disaster Loan advance of up to US$ 10,000. This advance is designed to provide economic relief to organizations that are currently experiencing a temporary loss of revenue. This loan advance will not have to be repaid.
