The EFO Program provides you with leadership skills you can use to strengthen your organization and help make your community more resilient.
Capstone Research Paper
To fulfill the research requirements of the EFO program, students must complete a Capstone Research Paper (CRP). The project selection for the CRP is designed to allow students to investigate a key issue or problem that has been identified as important to their fire service organization and community. The CRP is not intended to solve a task-level issue; it must demonstrate strategic value to the organization and community.Browse published CRPs
