Courage to Be Safe®

This firefighter training module provides an introduction to all sixteen Firefighter Life Safety Initiatives and assists the user in taking the first steps toward addressing these safety initiatives in their job and department.

Curbside Manner: Stress First Aid for the Street

Just as doctors talk about “bedside manner” when talking to patients, the “curbside manner” of first responders really makes a difference in how people experience and process a difficult life event.

Everyone Goes Home: After Action Review

After Action Review (AAR) offers the fire service the opportunity to formalize the tradition of informal post-incident conversations.

Leadership, Accountability, Culture and Knowledge (LACK)

This module educates fire officers how to make changes in their departments that will help prevent line-of-duty deaths.

Stress First Aid for Fire and EMS Personnel

Firefighter Life Safety Initiative #13 states: “Firefighters and their families should have access to counseling and psychological support.”

Taking Care of Our Own®

This firefighter training module is designed to help you to better understand and support the needs of both family and fire service survivors after a line-of-duty death and to learn how to create a plan for your fire department in case of such an event.

Company Officer’s Health & Safety Responsibilities

This self-paced program helps company officers understand their leadership role in the fundamentals of firefighter health and safety. This program discusses a wide range of topics at only the awareness level of depth. Further training and resources are recommended for company officers.

Communication & Mentoring for Company Officers

This self-paced program helps company officers understand their interpersonal communication and mentoring responsibilities. Knowing how to effectively communicate priorities, understand and respond to problems, and handle difficult situations is key to being an effective officer. This program is an introduction to the communication and mentoring topics through the eyes of seasoned company officers.
