New Free Emergency Management for the Fire Service Program Available
The Firefighters Support Foundation’s (FSF) newest free training program, Emergency Management for the Fire Service, is now available. As the role of the fire service expands, emergency management, rather than strict firefighting, will become an ever more important function that the fire service provides. This program defines the four major components of the emergency management cycle, and drills down into each of the four steps: preparation, response, recovery, and mitigation. A Question & Answer session wraps up the program.
This program consists of an 80-minute video program and an accompanying PowerPoint program. Firefighters and EMTs can view the video material with the PowerPoint file acting as their hard copy notes, or they can use either resource independently.
The presenter is former Chief Michael Finney, the CEO of the Open Fire Academy, adjunct faculty for the National Fire Service, a faculty member at four universities, and the author of several books for the fire service.
The PowerPoint and video portions of the program can be used by any agency or member either as-is, or as a basis from which to construct training modules or presentations of their own. Simply go to http://www.fireengineering.com/training/ffsupport.html to download your free copy.
