To Submit a Comment for the OSHA 1910.156 Rule

I. Go to the State Fire Districts website: https://www.afdsny.org/
2. Click on OSHA Urgent Action Needed
3. Scroll down to: "TO SUBMIT A COMMENT."
4. Click on the green button: "SUBMIT A FORMAL COMMENT."
5. Comment as follows:(copy & paste)

As a Volunteer Firefighter in New York State, I'm very concerned about the OSHA proposed revision of the Fire Brigade Rule to convert it to the Emergency Response Rule. I recognize that the health and safety of first responders is a paramount concern. However, the New York State Volunteer Fire Service needs time to review the changes proposed, the tasks created, and the costs associated with the revision of this rule. I would respectfully request a ninety (90) day extension of the comment period and further request that OSHA provide a public hearing scheduled with
sufficient notice to enable our leadership to make arrangements to appear to provide live comment at such hearing. 6. Complete the rest of the information and submit the comment. Thank you for your support in this very important matter.
Thank you (sign your name/department)
