Policies and procedures have become increasingly important to fire departments in our complex, litigious society. Beyond helping to reduce liability, effective policies improve operations and enhance the safety and health of firefighters. They are the cornerstone of organizational learning, and have proven to be the best method for incorporating lessons learned into a fire department’s daily operations.
Yet the lack of policies is repeatedly cited in NIOSH firefighter fatality reports as a contributing factor in firefighter fatalities. In addition the lack of policies figures prominently in many lawsuits holding fire departments liable. This program provides attendees with everything they need to know about researching, drafting and implementing sound and effective fire department policies and procedures, including:
