Effective Report Writing for Fire and EMS
March 20-22, 2019
Lansing Fire Department at 120 E. Shiawassee St. Lansing, MI
NOTE: This is a four hour presentation. It will be presented twice each day over a three day period for the Lansing FD.
When the incident is over, it’s time for the report. Think about it. Your training academy probably didn’t teach you how to write an effective and legally defendable report. As a result, it is left to chance and you may be set up to fail.
This course teaches you how to avoid potential legal problems while producing effective, brief, and well-organized reports. Students will participate in individual and group exercises, role playing exercises and review various sample reports. Interactive, fast paced, and full of tips and techniques you can use immediately to improve your report writing skills, this program is a must for anyone tasked with report writing and even those who must review reports of any kind.
