This two-day course is designed for those who coordinate or assist their organization in public education. The course does not teach people how to deliver safety programs; rather, it supports efforts to enhance safety education in their organizations and in their communities. Content is ideal for students from smaller or volunteer organizations who wish to enhance their public education and prevention efforts. Students will outline ideas and plans that they would like to apply when they return home. Students who take this two-day program will be able to determine if public education is valued in their organizations and in their communities. Course content emphasizes three simple methods for establishing "roots" in public fire and life safety education:
• Personal commitment to public education.
• Determining and improving the organization's role in public education.
• Enhancing programs through greater community support.
