Texas Fire Chiefs Association LODD Conference

ARE129 - 24.00 Hours

Description

This first-of-its-kind conference will have some of the most sought after speakers in the national fire service to place a laser focus on confronting the challenges in the fire service with LODDs. Various case studies of LODD incidents will be highlighted that continue to show that firefighters are dying for the same reasons time and time again. The “elephant in the room” is that our profession has to confront these issues more directly if there is any chance to reduce many LODDs that were caused by preventable errors.

This course can be scheduled to meet your specific needs. For more information about this course or to schedule a class for your organization, please contact Emergency Services Training Institute at (866) 878-8900 or esti@teex.tamu.edu.
