[ARCHIVED] MA Fire Academy Offers NFPA Course Best Practices Community Risk Reduction

Best Practices in Community Risk Reduction (F0635) – National Fire Academy Course

NFA Instructor:  Lt. Michael McLeieer

Dates:  November 1 & 2, 2016 - 8a.m. - 5p.m. daily

Location:  Massachusetts Firefighting Academy, MFA Link (off the cafeteria), 1 State Road, Stow, MA 01775

This free two-day course demonstrates to students nationally recognized principles that, when used appropriately, can lead to community risk-reduction programs that can measure success in local communities. This course will give students the opportunity to explore programs from communities across the United States that have been showcased at Vision 20/20 symposiums. These programs demonstrate what nationally recognized organizations identify as examples of “best practices” in community risk reduction.

At the end of the course, students will be evaluated through a 25-question multiple-choice examination. A final grade will be provided to each student. The minimum score needed to pass is 70.

There is a pre-course assignment that should take about one hour to complete before the first day of class.
