This course will focus on the phenomenon known as the "Normalization of Deviance" and how we as a fire service are surrounded by it at all times. This topic is similar to situational awareness but highlights all aspects of complacency on and off of the fire ground.
There will be a focus on organizational learning and leadership as well as strengthening our personal leadership qualities to navigate through the "Drift into Failure" process. This discussion will not be merely a theory or thought laden class.
We will focus on the "How To" as we learn to become more self aware of what the drift looks like and learning how to avoid, overcome, and battle this very observable course of actions to help prevent firefighter injuries and deaths.
