This course examines the 16 Firefighter Life Safety Initiatives (FLSI)—what they mean and how they can be adapted by every fire and emergency service organization. The 16 FLSI were developed by the National Fallen Firefighters Foundation with the support and consultation of virtually every major United States fire service organization. The goal of this course, set at the supervisory and managerial level, is to formulate and put into practice health and safety procedures that address firefighter injuries and fatalities. The course will also focus on the need for a culture change, especially regarding how decisions made at the managerial and operational levels can exert influence to ensure that “everyone goes home.” The goal of the course is to broaden the scope of the Firefighter Life Safety Initiatives and emphasize their importance at the supervisory and managerial levels.
Prerequisites: Fire and Emergency Services Administration, Personnel Management for the Fire and Emergency Services, or equivalent experience
