Course Description

This course educates fire officers how to make changes in their departments that will help prevent line of duty deaths. The course begins with the devastating impact of an LODD and the surprising fact that many contributing factors to LODDs result from the fire service culture, the reinforcement of unsafe behaviors, and breakdowns in safety priorities. The course then explains how a balanced approach of leadership, accountability, culture, and knowledge can reverse these contributing factors and help prevent LODDs. In each of these four areas, the course provides practical and specific information that the fire officer can immediately implement to save firefighter lives and reduce injuries.

This course includes writing exercises throughout the presentation. While these exercises are optional, they are designed to help you get the most out of this program and provide a reference for you as you move forward with implementing what you learn in this course.

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.
