TargetSolutions’ new training course ‘Fire Service Health and Safety’ covers the most common line of duty deaths and how to improve the health and wellness of fire service members.

Firefighters put their lives on the line on a regular basis, but when not on duty there are other silent hazards, most notably physical diseases, behavioral disorders and unhealthy diets.

“Fire Service Health and Safety” is a brand-new training course developed by TargetSolutions. The 60-minute overview is designed to inform firefighters on the concepts, science, and economics of fire service-related health and safety. Equipped with 10 learning modules and a 10-question exam, this course offers a comprehensive overview of critical issues for firefighter wellness.

“Physical disease and behavioral disorders impact firefighters in different ways,” said TargetSolutions’ Director of Content Lauren Crosby. “These disorders can be unique, yet still clearly identifiable and quantifiable to those looking for them. This course analyzes wellness, line of duty deaths, common diseases, and what we can do about it. It makes important correlations between health, wellness and the fire service.”

Objectives of this online training course include:

  • The need for wellness in firefighting
  • The most common types of line of duty deaths among firefighters
  • The most common diseases among firefighters
  • How firefighters can stay in shape and the costs of injuries and poor health
  • How health and wellness in the fire industry are connected
