Basic Ohio Fire Incident Reporting System (OFIRS) - 2223 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.

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.

Driving Simulation Lab Acquired through an Assistance to Firefighters Grant, the Driving Simulation Lab system is a training resource that is integrated into a driver skills and judgment training curriculum. It provides a bridge between classroom-delivered instruction and actual operation of a motor vehicle on a prepared course or public roadway. A driver can experience the consequences of making decisions based upon incomplete information.
Drivers can practice making decisions in simulated life and death situations similar to those actually encountered on the road that would be too dangerous to perform in the real world.

FCSO Operation Street Smart The Franklin County Sheriff’s Office created Operation Street Smart in July 2002 as a way to take community oriented policing to a new level. Street Smart is a collaborative effort between D.A.R.E. and the Special Investigations Unit (SIU), which is the Sheriff’s Office undercover narcotics branch. To date, Operation: Street Smart has been presented over 1,500 times to over 150,000 people throughout Ohio and the United States. In May 2004, the program received the F.B.I. Director’s Community Leadership Award.

The goal of Street Smart is to provide current and up-to-date narcotics information on trends, terminology, paraphernalia, concealment techniques, and physiological effects to those individuals who deal with today’s youth on a daily basis. The target audience for street smart includes DARE and school resource officers, juvenile detectives, school administrators and school board members, teachers, and parents. Other groups and organizations that deal with juveniles are also eligible to receive this program. Past attendees have also included physicians, school nurses, juvenile prosecutors, juvenile probation officers, and children services employees.

Three current/former undercover detectives, who possess over fifty years of combined narcotics experience, conduct the Street Smart presentation. This program includes actual examples of current designer street drugs such as XTC, Bath Salts, Huffing, LSD, GHB, K2/Spice, and Khat. Current drug paraphernalia examples are available to depict the ease in camouflaging drug use from adults. A strong emphasis is placed on the physiological effects of the drugs and indicators to look for. So-called “traditional” drugs such as marijuana, cocaine, crack, heroin, and methamphetamine are also covered extensively as teenagers still heavily abuse these drugs. A portion of the program also deals with prescription medications, including DXM, due to the easy accessibility in most households. The entire presentation is back dropped by a PowerPoint slide show depicting additional examples of the drug being shown.

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.
