Courage to be Safe This is a provocative and moving presentation by the National Fallen Firefighters
Foundation, through the Everyone Goes Home® Program, that is designed to change the
culture of accepting the loss of firefighters as a normal occurrence.
Building on the untold story of line-of-duty death survivors, it reveals how family
members must live with the consequences of a firefighter death. This presentation
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 the day.
Firefighters must have the courage to face a multitude of risks in order to save lives and
protect their communities. Their courage allows them to willingly risk their own lives so
that others can be saved. A different type of courage is required to stay safe in potentially
dangerous situations, avoiding needless risks and tragic consequences. This program is a
must for all who care, share, and have a feeling for the safety of all firefighters.

Firefighter Mile Exam The Firefighter Mile is an entry-level firefighter physical ability test designed to assess readiness for the physical demands of firefighting. In particular, the Firefighter Mile is designed to demonstrate that the candidate has sufficient stamina, strength, and agility to accomplish the critical job tasks. Research has shown that the most common cause of firefighter injury, and even death, is overexertion and stress. Ensuring the physical fitness of firefighters helps reduce their chance of injury and death, which in turn provides for the safety of victims and other firefighters alike.
The Firefighter Mile consists of ten events arranged in a specific order. Three of the ten events are walking events, interspersed between the other events. Each event must be performed in a technically correct fashion or a warning or disqualification will be issued.
To pass the test, candidates must properly complete all tasks in the correct order. There is not an overall time limit, though there is a time limit for each event. One point is awarded for completing each event within a specified time. Candidates must receive at least eight out of 10 points to pass. Candidates may pass an event but earn no points if they finish within a longer maximum time frame.

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:
1. Issues that could lead to a line of duty death or serious injury.
2. How the death/injury occurred.
3. How it could have been prevented.
4. 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

Ohio Fire Incident Reporting System To achieve uniformity in reporting, the U.S. Fire Administration (USFA) has developed the National Fire Incident Reporting System (NFIRS). This system is based primarily on the work of the Nation fire Information Council (NFIC) and the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) Technical Committee on Fire Reporting. The NFPA Technical Committee on Fire Reporting is responsible for developing and maintaining NFPA 901, Standard Classifications for Incident Reporting and Fire Protection Data. This standard establishes basic definitions and terminology for use in incident reporting and serves as a means of classifying data so that the information can be aggregated. Upon completion of the class students will understand the benefits of using the Ohio and National Fire Incident Reporting System; explain the need to collect fire data; identify the modules that are included in the system and state the purpose of the complete reference guide. The course will cover the use of the following modules: Basic Module; Fire Module; Structure Fire Module; Civilian Fire Casualty Module and Fire Service Casualty Module. The Basic Module captures general information on every incident (or emergency call) to which the department responds. The Fire Module is used to describe each fire incident by tracking the particular types of fires or items involved in the fire. The Structure Fire Module used in conjunction with the Fire Module describes each structure fire to which the department responds. The Civilian Fire Casualty Module is used to report injuries or deaths to civilians or other emergency personnel (e.g. police officers, non-fire department/EMS personnel) that are related to a fire incident. this module is used in conjunction with the Fire Module and if applicable, the Structure Fire Module. The Fire Service Casualty Module is used to report injuries and deaths of firefighters. The module can also be used to report exposure of a firefighter to chemicals or biological agents at an incident where that exposure does not result in any symptoms at that time but that manifest themselves at a later date. This module may be used with any of the other modules.
