PREVENTING FIRE RISK BASED ON SOCIOECONOMIC FACTORS:
RURAL AND URBAN SETTINGS
Code FF200
Length 15 Hours
Description

This course will develop ideas and plans to address the high fire incidence among populations based on socioeconomic factors. Rural and urban settings are taken as samples.

 

This new course is designed for students who work in the field of prevention. Students learn to focus on the socioeconomic factors that contribute to high fire incidence among populations in rural and urban areas. Values, attitudes, and behaviors as well as social and economic characteristics will be evaluated.

 

Effective change techniques, existing programs, and community collaboration are reviewed to develop effective solutions to community high-risk target groups. Course content includes how socioeconomic factors play a significant role in high incidence of fire, fire deaths, and fire injuries; attitudes, values, and behaviors of population at high risk for fire; poverty and low education levels may explain up to one third of the variation in fire deaths; reaching into neighborhoods to create change for populations that are at high risk for fire; and program issues for high-risk groups in rural and urban groups.

 

Participants take a short multiple-choice exam on key course concepts.
