Newnan planning risk prevention workshop

June 16, 2018 by  

Keeping the community safe starts with reducing the risk of accidents, fires and other emergencies, and a Newnan workshop will cover this topic from the perspective of a first responder.

The day of discussion and learning has been planned for support personnel, firefighters, and those who work to educate others in injury prevention. It is free to participate, and lunch will be provided.

The topics on the slate for the day include how to organize a smoke alarm blitz, the ins and outs of presenting to various age groups, planning educational programming and evacuating its effectiveness, CPR, and also statewide messaging. The organizers noted that participation in the course is not a replacement for Fire and Life Safety Educator 1.

Each of the attendees in the training will receive their own copy of the Georgia Unified Community Risk Reduction Guide. This will include both suggestions for integrating the learning into the Georgia Board of Education Curriculum, as well as a weekly topic guide. Items like this can be prepared by print shops in the area.

The day of learning will be offered on July 8, starting at 8:00 am. It is scheduled to conclude at 4:00 pm, and it will be offered at Coweta County Fire Rescue at 483 Turkey Creek Road in Newnan. Each person who registers will receive one ticket.
