March 12, 2012
The Firefighters Support Foundation’s (FSF) newest free training program, The Fire Safety Officer: Roles and Responsibilities, is now available. The program consists of a 25-minute video program and an accompanying 15-slide PowerPoint presentation.
The program covers:

Firefighters can view the video material with the PowerPoint file acting as their hard copy notes, or they can use either resource independently. The PowerPoint and video portions of the program can be used by any agency or member either as-is, or as a basis from which to construct training modules or presentations of their own. Simply go to www.ffsupport.org to download your free copy.
