Fire Department Opportunity (No Cost)
FDSOA and the Center for Firefighter Injury Research & Safety Trends (FIRST) at Drexel University have partnered to help you FOCUS on your safety culture. The Fire Service Organizational Culture of Safety (FOCUS) survey is the first safety culture tool developed specifically for the fire service. It will provide your fire department with objective data to assess your safety culture.
FOCUS is a validated and reliable tool that allows an in-depth look into your department’s safety culture and its effect on job satisfaction/moral, engagement, and burnout in your department. To date the FOCUS survey has been administered in over 400 fire departments . . . and it is now open for YOUR department.
They are NOW enrolling up to 1,000 fire departments — career and volunteer — interested in administering the FOCUS survey on a first-come, first-served basis at no cost. Participating departments will receive:
Customized data showing your safety culture at department and station levels
A comparative analysis of your safety culture to similar participating departments
Objective evidence to inform safety related policy decisions
Eligibility to send two members to FOCUS Culture Camp: a two-day intensive training on safety culture, the FOCUS survey, and how to interpret your results
