Fire Safety in Corrections
Especially in a corrections facility, it is essential to be prepared in case of a fire. Many inmates have special needs that make them especially vulnerable in a fire emergency, thus increasing the risk of fire casualties. Corrections staff must make every effort to prevent fires from starting and must be prepared to respond if a fire breaks out. This course covers the basic elements of fire safety needed to help keep corrections facilities safe. However, you should always be familiar with and follow the policies and procedures for YOUR facility in the case of a fire.
