Programs in Development

Caregiver Training

State law (OCGA, Chapter 25, Title 2) mandates fire safety training for newly licensed adults working in “group day care homes” and “daycare centers,” as well as administrators, directors, operators and all staff of Group I-1 and Group R-4 assisted living communities, assisted living facilities, community living arrangements, memory care units, personal care homes and residential board and care homes.

 

Youth Firesetter

Create a multi-disciplinary team (MDT) that includes representatives of Atlanta Police Department, juvenile courts, district attorney’s office, Fulton County Fire, Atlanta Public Schools and local mental health agencies. The MDT will meet with children/youths referred by local agencies and AFRD field personnel to conduct a Fire Intervention Program.

 

CPR-AED Training

AFRD is constantly fielding requests for CPR-AED training. These requests are passed on to AFRD staff who handle such training on an individual basis or to the Red Cross and American Heart Association, all of whom/which charge for the training.

 

Silver Service

AFRD has an untapped resource in its retiree population. The Department could create a senior outreach program based on NFPA’s Remembering When program, training retirees who would then volunteer their time (even one day a month) to present information to the City’s senior high-rises.
