    Fire and rescue services involve practices associated with prevention and response to fire emergencies. The Organizing Fire and Rescue Services Online Training provides an introduction of prevention at a large scale, including pre-incident planning, fire and emergency training, and public systems management (emergency services, alarm, dispatch, and communications).

    The Organizing Fire and Rescue Services course offers 3D firefighter PPE demonstrations covering the importance of PPE, PPE safety best practices, and a 360-degree model of a firefighter wearing PPE. Unique content also features an NFPA expert interview video on the topic of community risk reduction.
