Press release:

Responding to concerns over the length of firefighting training programs, the NYS Office of Fire Prevention and Control has redesigned the Fire Officer I (FOI) program into five individual modules.

Completion of all five modules will earn the participant a Fire Officer 1 certificate. 

The Genesee County Fire Training Center recently hosted several of the Officer Development modules, including the Leadership & Supervision module, Firefighter Health & Safety module, and the Planning and Emergency Response module.

The Leadership & Supervision module provided students with a fundamental knowledge of the duties, responsibilities and leadership required to be successful as a fire officer as well as the basic responsibilities of the fire officer as they relate to human resource management and common administrative functions

Firefighter Health & Safety presented the basic knowledge for effective communications for both administrative functions and emergency incidents. Students learned how to apply skills for oral and written communications in addition to conducting a size-up based on emergency incidents. Additionally, this course provided the company officer with the skills needed to identify and prevent common safety hazards and perform an initial accident investigation.  

Planning and Emergency Response addressed the fundamentals of building construction and commonly found fire protection features.  Students learned how to conduct a pre-incident plan survey; what elements to include and how to develop and manage the pre-incident plan. Company officer responsibilities were also reviewed.
