FIRE 102: Courage to be Safe

Class Program
Credits 1

Firefighters must have the courage to face many risks to save lives and protect their communities. Their courage allows them to risk their own lives to save others willingly. A different type of courage is required to stay safe in potentially dangerous situations, avoiding needless risks and tragic consequences.  This provocative  and moving presentation is designed to change the culture of accepting the loss of firefighters as a normal occurrence. Building on the untold story of LODD survivors, it reveals how family members must live with the consequences of a firefighter death and provides a focus on the need for firefighters and officers to change fundamental attitudes and behaviors in order to prevent line of duty deaths. The central theme promotes the courage to do the right thing in order to protect yourself and other firefighters and ensure that everyone goes home.
