There is a very unique opportunity coming up that we wanted to pass on to you. It’s an opportunity for your department to send one or more of your officers to a “train the trainer” program in leading/managing and dealing with firehouse behavioral issues. and many more.
This program provides the answer to the question “what training have you provided your officers specifically related to preventing as well as handling fire station behavioral issues?”
The IAFC is offering this unique and limited enrollment program entitled:
Bullying Prevention: Train-the-Trainer Program
Monday, August 5 thru Wednesday, August 7, 9 AM – 4 PM in Atlanta, GA.
This program, provided by subject matter experts (see below podcast link), will provide education and training for future trainers to help reduce bullying in the firehouse. This training is a fire service specific version of the very popular Workplace Bullying University put on by the Workplace Bullying Institute.
Atlanta is an easy in and out for travel and this program ends on the day that F.R.I. starts, so it may be very convenient for some, who also plan on attending F.R.I.
Take a minute to check out this upcoming opportunity, developed by the IAFC Safety, Health and Survival Section (SHSS) and the Human Relations Committee.
We wouldn’t pass this on to you if we didn’t think it was worth your time.
