Curriculum: Fire Prevention: Management

This 6-day course is designed to enhance knowledge and skills necessary to lead, manage and apply fire prevention strategies and community risk reduction initiatives at the local level. This course will give students tools and techniques to raise the level of importance for prevention within their organization. The course will demonstrate how fire prevention and other risk reduction initiatives can benefit them directly and individually in providing a safer work environment. Students will be guided through a process that shows how to strategically build support internally and externally for community risk reduction, the steps and activities necessary to sustain programs and how these come together to create effective risk reduction programs. The ultimate goal of the course is to develop an emergency service workforce committed, in word and deed, to safer communities.

Selection Criteria Emergency services personnel currently serving in fire suppression, training, EMS or fire prevention, as well as those who have or will have prevention responsibilities and would like to expand their prevention knowledge are encouraged to apply. Personnel with little or no prevention background will benefit significantly.
