Courage To Be Safe®
This course 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.

Leadership So Everyone Goes Home
A course of the Everyone Goes Home® Program of the National Fallen Firefighters Foundation designed to assist in the reduction of LODDs utilizing a series of case studies. Each study will include what happened, why it happened, what could have avoided it, were safety measures available and used, and how can we prevent this in the future. The benefit of this program is the review of cultural change or adaptive challenge, rather than just enacting a technical fix, which in most cases does not work. Leadership So Everyone Goes Home is a four-hour program designed to assist the chief level officer to define the tools to identify:

  1. Issues that could lead to a line of duty death or serious injury,
  2. How the death/injury occurred,
  3. How it could have been prevented,
  4. What steps should a fire department take to reduce the possibility of experiencing this action and outcome
