Courage To Be Safe - General Delivery

XTN040 - 4.00 Hours

Description

Firefighters must have the courage to face a multitude of risks in order to save lives and protect their communities. Their courage allows them to willingly risk their own lives so that others can be saved.

A different type of courage is required to stay safe in potentially dangerous situations, avoiding needless risks, and tragic consequences. This provocative and moving presentation is designed to change the culture of accepting the loss of firefighters as a normal occurrence.

Building on the untold story of Line-of-Duty Death (LODD) survivors, it reveals how family members must live with the consequences of a firefighter’s death, and provides a focus on the need for firefighters and officers to change fundamental attitudes and behaviors in order to prevent line of duty deaths.

The central theme promotes the courage to do the right thing in order to protect yourself and other firefighters and ensure that, “Everyone Goes Home” at the end of the day.
