A course of the Everyone Goes Home® Program of the National Fallen Firefighters Foundation
designed to assist in the reduction of LODDs utilizing a series of case studies. Each study will
include what happened, why it happened, what could have avoided it, were safety measures
available and used, and how can we prevent this in the future. The benefit of this program is the
review of cultural change or adaptive challenge, rather than just enacting a technical fix, which
in most cases does not work. A great program for senior fire officers and administrative officers.
This is learning from actual incidents!
Leadership So Everyone Goes Home is a four-hour program designed to assist the chief level
officer to define the tools to identify:
- Issues that could lead to a line of duty death or serious injury,
- How the death/injury occurred,
- How it could have been prevented,
- What steps,
- Should a fire department take to reduce the possibility of experiencing this action and outcome,
Reviewing the adaptive challenges facing emergency services today to create a safer
environment. All learning utilizes real-world incidents to learn and adapt our actions so
everyone does go home!
This program is specifically designed for the more senior level fire officers who have had
opportunities to be command officers at a wide variety of emergency incidents, including fires
and hazardous materials responses. Utilizing case studies the learning objectives become more
real to life and the possibility of changing the organizational culture to reduce the possibility of
deaths and injuries in the future.
