New Training "Introduction to Fire Extinguishers" Now Available

NAFED has created a new online training program that provides a general overview and introduction to portable fire extinguishers. The training is free for members and available now!

The majority of users of this program will be new technicians. This program is not intended to provide detailed servicing information nor should it replace hands-on training provided by those skilled in the industry. There are multiple correct ways to perform services and each company may use particular methods. This online program instead serves as general awareness training.

Webinar on New Commercial Driver Medical Exam Rules

Are you ready for new commercial driver medical exam rules? UL is offering a complimentary webinar on November 4 from noon to 1 p.m. CST where you can learn what the new rules mean for employers with commercial vehicle operations and drivers.

The new national commercial driver medical exam rules go into effect 5/21/2014. The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration estimates 40,000 certified medical examiners will be needed to perform exams, submit monthly reports and file certificates on more than 4.6 million truck and bus drivers a year. Meanwhile, CMV drivers will be required to be examined by medical professionals who have undergone specialized training and passed a test to qualify for the registry.

Tag Deadlines Approaching

If you would like to receive your 2014 tags from NAFED before January 1, please send your tag order in by November 4. Orders received after November 4 but by December 1 are guaranteed delivery by January 5. 2014.

How does the NAFED tag program work? NAFED uses its membership power to make a bulk printing batch with the printer, which leads to a significant discount for everyone who purchases tags. Orders are fulfilled on a monthly basis rather than an as-received basis. If you do not get your order in by the monthly deadline, this could mean a longer wait for your tags.
