There will be a Lexipol & IAFC webinar next week, Wednesday, September 16, 1 pm Eastern / 10 am Pacific and it will be featuring:
-FDNY Chief of Department John Sudnik…
-Seattle Fire Chief Harold Scoggins…
-Chief of Champaign IL Fire Chief Gary Ludwig (Immediate Past IAFC President)…
-Atlanta 1st Deputy Fire Chief Byron Kennedy…
THEIR FOCUS: Civil Unrest & The Fire Service.
When peaceful protests take over the streets and demonstrations turn violent, leading to arson and injuries, fire departments are called to respond alongside law enforcement. These situations create challenging questions about how to fulfill the department mission while protecting firefighters and equipment.
Join these Fire Chiefs, Lexipol and the International Association of Fire Chiefs for an inside look at fire department response on the front lines of civil unrest—including Seattle, New York City and Atlanta—and learn how your department can be better prepared.
-Issues that prevented Firefighters from accessing areas where they were needed
-Strategies for communicating effectively between leaders and rank-and-file and setting department-wide operational and professional expectations
-Tactics for keeping firefighters safe while responding to potentially violent situations
-How fire departments can take an active role in confronting racial injustice while still supporting law enforcement.
These Chiefs have “been there and done that” and have an important message for all ranks-from Firefighter to Chief – so we can all learn.
