About the Everyone Goes Home® Program

National Fallen Firefighters Memorial
In March 2004, the Firefighter Life Safety Summit was held in Tampa, Florida to address the need for change within the fire and emergency services. Through this meeting, 16 Life Safety Initiatives were produced to ensure that Everyone Goes Home®.

The Everyone Goes Home® Program, founded by the National Fallen Firefighters Foundation, provides free training, resources, and programs to champion and implement the 16 Firefighter Life Safety Initiatives. The goal of the Everyone Goes Home® Program is to reduce the number of preventable firefighter line-of-duty injuries and deaths.

The Everyone Goes Home® Firefighter Life Safety Initiatives Program is made possible through the efforts of the National Fallen Firefighters Foundation with funding provided by the Department of Homeland Security, Assistance to Firefighters Grant, and the generosity of Fireman's Fund Insurance Company.

Courage to Be Safe® Training
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" at the end of a tour of duty.

Leadership So Everyone Goes Home® Training
Leadership So Everyone Goes Home® is a four-hour course that focuses on leadership strategies for department members, whether their role is as a senior firefighter, company-level officer or a chief officer. The course includes four case studies that encourage participants to look beyond technical fixes to problems and move toward making adaptive change. Using NIOSH reports, the group will discuss possible techniques that can be applied to avoid similar incidents.

Leadership, Accountability, Culture and Knowledge (LACK) Training
This compelling presentation by the National Fallen Firefighters Foundation examines the root causes of LODDs and the role of Leadership, Accountability, Culture and Knowledge as it impacts the end result. Many fire departments across the United States "LACK the Right Stuff" to prevent them from being on a path to a line-of-duty death. Leadership, Accountability, Culture and Knowledge are the elements that are addressed in this course.

Community Risk Reduction (CRR) Training
The National Fallen Firefighters Foundation has partnered with Vision 20-20 to assess the current state of Community Risk Reduction (CRR) throughout the United States by conducting a nationwide survey to determine how fire departments are using the 16 Firefighter Life Safety Initiatives to advance CRR. Based on the results, a model management program has been developed by 12 demonstration departments who were selected for their long-standing commitment to CRR. Strategies included the development of CRR-specific strategic goals that any fire department can adapt to local situations. The presentation will include a review of the national survey, presentation of resources from the demonstration departments, and a question and answer session from our presenters. Special attention will be paid to the 16 Firefighter Life Safety Initiatives, especially Initiatives 14 (Public education must be championed as a critical fire and life safety component of every fire department) & Initiative 15 (Advocacy must be strengthened for the enforcement of codes and the installation of home fire sprinklers).
