About this Event

Presented by: Training and Safety Division Chief Nicolas Morgado

Chief Nicolas Morgado is a 16-year veteran of the Fire Service and serves as the Training and Safety Division Chief for Miami-Dade Fire Rescue Department. He has served as an Operations Training Captain where he was a lead instructor and the coordinator for Miami-Dade’s Officer Development Programs and Incident Command Training Program. He is member of the Region 7 All Hazards Incident Management Team and has served as instructor for the Ft. Lauderdale Fire Expo, Great Florida Fire School, Fire Rescue East and the High-Rise Operations Conference.

This course is a provocative and moving presentation by the National Fallen Firefighters Foundation, through the Everyone Goes Home® Program, that is designed to change the culture of accepting the loss of firefighters as a normal occurrence.

Building on the untold story of line of duty death survivors, it reveals how family members must live with the consequences of a firefighter death. This presentation provides a focus on the need for firefighters and officers to change fundamental attitudes and behaviors in order to prevent line of duty deaths. The central theme promotes the courage to do the right thing in order to protect yourself and other firefighters and ensure that “Everyone Goes Home” at the end of the day.

Firefighters must have the courage to face a multitude of risks in order to save lives and protect their communities. Their courage allows them to willingly risk their own lives so that others can be saved. A different type of courage is required to stay safe in potentially dangerous situations, avoiding needless risks and tragic consequences.
