The Fire Service has been criticized for resisting change, even when change could bring about positive outcomes. While we may have made great strides in some areas, we are still doing business in many ways as we always have. After taking this course, firefighters will demonstrate a general knowledge of the cultures that have evolved in the fire service and changes that need to take place to improve firefighter safety. Firefighters will be able to identify fire service traditions that have compromised firefighter safety, recognize dangerous situations and identify changes that need to take place to reduce the potential for injury and death to firefighters. Recognizing the need to do more to prevent line-of-duty deaths and injuries, the National Fallen Firefighteers Foundation has launched a national initiaitive to bring prevention to the forefront. The NFFF will play a major role in helping the U.S. Fire Administration meet its goal to reduce firefighter fatalities by 25% within 5 years and by 50% within 10 years.
