National Fire Academy Delivery

Conducting Local Risk Reduction by Company Officer (N0186)

Date: September 25 – 30, 2017
8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.

Location: New Hanover County Executive Development Center
1241 Military Cutoff Road
Wilmington, NC 28405

Course description

This new 6-day NFA course seeks to improve the skills of Company Officers (COs) to lead and conduct risk-reduction activities within the service area of their station/community. The course is both for the CO who is currently engaged in risk-reduction activities and the CO who desires to lay the foundation to start community risk reduction.

CLRRCO is about how a local fire station can plan, implement, and evaluate risk-reduction activities to benefit the citizens it serves. The course features the role of the CO as an inspirational leader both within the fire station and in the service area of the station/community.

Students learn that a broader approach to fire protection involves multiple interventions, and when all are applied to a specific community risk issue, a difference is likely to occur, reducing risk for the citizens. Students also learn that by reducing the community’s risk, the risk for firefighting forces is also reduced.

The course emphasizes risk-reduction activities, which enable station personnel through development and implementation of a plan, to reduce risks within their station service area. Students will have the opportunity to develop/simulate a plan to lead station personnel to reduce risks in their own service area.

Selection criteria

  • Company Officers who have station-based responsibility for a service area.
  • Consideration also given to acting Company Officers who have station-based responsibility for a service area.
