Fire Service Safety Culture - Who Protects Firefighters from Firefighters

NFA108 - 12.00 Hours

Description

NFA logoCourse defines and advocates the need for organizational change within the fire service relating to safety, incorporating leadership (management and supervision), accountability and personal responsibility. The course will help both the fire service and municipalities address identified needs or problems, decide what can be done about them, and identify financial incentives, as well as identify the role each can perform to ensure the success of any proposed solution. Rather than have the instructor dictate concerns, the students will discover the need for change themselves by completing activities that address and examine risk and risk management. This approach is meant to reduce barriers that diminish unreceptive attitudes, thus increasing the possibility of effecting change.
