The Fire Department Safety Officers Association (FDSOA) and the Center for Firefighter Injury Research & Safety Trends (FIRST) at Drexel University have partnered to help you FOCUS on your safety culture. FOCUS- the Fire Service Organizational Culture of Safety survey- was developed through the FEMA Assistance to Firefighters Grant R&D Program specifically for the fire service and is a tool that will provide your fire department with objective data to assess your safety culture. A validation study showed for every 10-point increase in FOCUS score, there is on average a…
- 6% decrease in Firefighter Injury Rate.
- 2.5-point decrease in Burnout.
- 8-point increase in Job Satisfaction/Morale.
- 7-point increase in Work Engagement.
The Fire Service Organizational Culture of Safety (FOCUS) tool predicts firefighter injuries, burnout, morale, and engagement. We’ve already assessed over 150 departments. We can support up to 500 with free assessment and analysis. Such an effort would cost a fire department between $10,000 -15,000, but fortunately FEMA funding provides this service free.
