Frontline Safety (16 hours)

The IAFF developed a 16-hour course entitled Frontline Safety. In this course, the IAFF gives students the opportunity to examine their own values, those of their work team, and those of their organization when it comes to safety. Students learn about the National Fire Fighter Near-Miss Reporting System and the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health’s Fire Fighter Fatality Investigation and Prevention Program, which provides information about the causes of fire fighter injuries and fatalities. Students also learn strategies they can use to demonstrate safety is their primary value. The purpose of the course is to help decrease the number of injuries and deaths experienced by the fire service by helping students become safety leaders or advocates for safe behavior.

Avian & Pandemic Influenza (1.5 hours)

This is an interactive course that helps students prepare for a pandemic by identifying the differences between seasonal, epidemic and pandemic infections with a concentration on avian flu. This class will describe the role of the safety/infection control and prevention officers before and after a pandemic as well as how to protect themselves and their patients. Topics include: describing the symptoms, potential and effects of avian flu; how it is spread; proper decontamination procedures; and the importance of seasonal flu vaccination.
