Improving the Health & Safety of all Emergency Responders

During the summer of 2018, the FDSOA and several other diverse and passionate fire service professionals, were invited to participate in a safety curriculum review at the National Fire Academy. The team of subject matter experts in areas of mental health, physical health, and safety reviewed several previously existing curriculums to identify current gaps.

The work of the team will result in new course offerings and revisions of existing courses. These offerings will address recent empirical findings on emergency responder health and safety.
