Saving Firefighters from Themselves: Developing Company- and Battalion-Level Training Programs
Date & Time
Friday, October 11, 2019, 2:30 PM - 4:00 PM
Proactive and relevant training is not the responsibility of the fire chief or city mayor—it is the core responsibility of the men and women who call themselves company/chief officers! This program will identify successful strategies for implementing relevant training and educational programs within a fire department. Strategies and concepts discussed in this presentation are based on adult learning principles, best practices, and core topics—themes that are essential to the needs of today's firefighters. Most importantly, many of these strategies require no financial expenditures, are fun, and serve as a source for building increased levels of competency.
