Through a collaborative effort with the U.S. Department of Justice, this course provides the necessary training to help establish state and regional Local Assistance State Teams (LAST) to assist in the event of a line-of-duty death. The primary objective of a LAST is to provide assistance and comfort to the family and department after a line-of-duty death and to help with filing for federal, state, and local benefits.
This course is a presentation by the National Fallen Firefighters Foundation, through the Everyone Goes Home Program, that is designed to change the culture of accepting the loss of firefighters as a normal occurrence.
This presentation by the National Fallen Firefighter Foundations examines the root causes of line-of-duty deaths and the role of Leadership, Accountability, Culture and Knowledge (LACK) as it influences the end result. Many fire departments across the United States "LACK the Right Stuff" to prevent them from being on a path to a line-of-duty death, with leadership, accountability, culture, and knowledge as the elements that need to be addressed and managed in those environments.
This module is a roundtable discussion among five fire service leaders about how to create change in the fire service and lead a culture of safety. The roundtable discusses how to lead an organization where safety is a primary focus, including making safety a priority, handling resistance, extending responsible behavior modeling to "informal leaders" in the ranks, managing crew resources, fostering an environment of trust, and mitigating risk. The discussion was unscripted and guided by only a few questions posed to the group.

Tact, Tactics, and Trust is an evidence-based police training system that combines essential officer safety, communication, and trust-building skills into a unified curriculum. These skills determine officers' safety and effectiveness on every public interaction, as well as during their interactions with subordinates, peers, and leaders. Like any kind of human performance, police-community interactions must be learned and deliberately practiced in a realistic context. For this reason, classes are as interactive as possible, even though a large number of officers may be attending.
