Multiculturalism and the Fire Service: Addressing the Safety Challenges of Communities with Cultural, Generational and Language Differences Webinar

FIRE 20/20™,a research and education nonprofit recently studied risk, injuries and the loss of life to both firefighters and community members in multicultural communities. Funded by a DHS Fire Prevention and Safety Grant, the research explored the safety challenges faced by the fire service and members of communities with multiple languages, differing cultural traditions and generational differences. The Multiculturalism and the Fire Service Webinar shared the results of this new research and best practices for working more effectively with multicultural communities, as well as strategies for developing and implementing multicultural recruitment programs, and prevention and public service campaigns to reduce the toll of fire-related injuries and deaths.

Presenters:

Meri-K Appy, President of the Home Safety Council
Larry Sagen, Director of Fire 20/20™
