Executive Fire Officer (EFO) papers

The EFO research papers are written by individual students after they leave campus as part of their class assignment. These research papers are available for in-house use by library visitors, for checkout by NETC users and for loan to off-campus users via interlibrary loan. Please note however that the LRC since 1996 only retains EFO papers that received a grade of 3.0 or better. All other papers are entered into the LRC catalog only with an abstract. If you'd like to get a copy of a paper for which the LRC has only retained an abstract you'll need to contact the author directly. Most EFO Papers published since FY98 are now available to download or read online in their entirety. You'll see links in our online catalog citations to these papers as they are available in digits. There is a backlog in scanning current year papers so the most recent titles may still be unavailable online.
