Course Description

This first-of-its-kind conference will have some of the most sought after speakers in the national fire service to place a laser focus on confronting the challenges in the fire service with LODDs. Various case studies of LODD incidents will be highlighted that continue to show that firefighters are dying for the same reasons time and time again. The “elephant in the room” is that our profession has to confront these issues more directly if there is any chance to reduce many LODDs that were caused by preventable errors.
