Course 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.

I want to personally thank both of you for an outstanding Disaster Management for Water & Wastewater class. This was the BEST class I have taken. You have “Fire in the belly” and that made the class so much better and did not allow a student to get bored. A terrific job!!! I do want us to schedule another one for 2016 back at the same location. Take care and keep doing what you do. Super guys.
