Public Fire Education Planning. A Five Step Process.
Stamps, Jeff; And Others
This manual describes a systematic approach to designing, implementing, and evaluating public fire education programs. An introductory section discusses use of the planning process that has a starting point and five basic steps. The second section focuses on the starting point--establishing responsibility in two major areas as well as administrative or policy responsibility and staff or program responsibility. The next five sections each cover one of the five steps. Materials provided for each step are an objective; activities that involve gathering and organizing information, materials, and resources; and a decision (review, summarization of, and action on the information). These five steps are described: (1) identification of major local fire problems, (2) selection of program objectives that meet the community's needs and resources, (3) design of the educational program package, (4) implementation of the educational program designed for the community's specific needs and resources, and (5) evaluation of the program's impact. Appendixes include a summary of the Oregon experience in using the Public Fire Education Planning process and worksheets, both a completed sample and a blank form of each one. (YLB)
