Course Description

Establishing a fire and life safety program allows fire departments to develop a community outreach that expands beyond responding to emergencies.  Traditionally, a fire department’s prevention activities were limited to gathering information from code inspections and fire investigations and presenting public fire education programs.  As community hazards have increased and the services delegated to fire departments have changed, these activities have expanded to meet the community’s needs.  This course offers 4 CE hours covering program development, delivery, as well as: fire and life safety codes, education, and presentations.  This course offers an interactive practice session and a module quiz based off IFSTA Essentials of Firefighting 7th edition.  This course satisfies: NFPA 1001 5.5.1, 5.5.2, 5.5.3


There are no prerequisites for this course.
