Student Fee

Class specific

Course Description

This course is designed to reach current and future fire officers, training officers, and chief officers; it provides the opportunity to learn how Leadership, Accountability, Culture and Knowledge (LACK) can improve, both their own and their organization's skill set. It assumes the attendee has not yet fully integrated the Everyone Goes Home Campaign into their organization. While improving Leadership skills, recognizing the importance of Accountability, understanding the impact of Culture, and embracing the need for continuous Knowledge, the student will examine the 16 Firefighter Life Safety Initiatives and learn how to incorporate them into their personal and organizational "improvement action plan". The course also examines the root causes of line of duty deaths (LODDs) and the individual elements that need to be managed in the risk environments that firefighters work. LACK helps students improve survivability by studying the root causes of firefighter fatalities and tackling these four elements with special emphasis on understanding fire service culture.
