Document It or It Didn’t Happen

Fire officers face more problematic legal issues in today’s work environment than ever before. In the absence of appropriate documentation, even the most prepared department will not be able to prove the various ways they invested in the development of appropriate knowledge, skills, and abilities for their team. Should this preparation be called into question, proper documentation gives you the best chance of solid defense in the event of litigation. Gerry Roberts, JD will discuss how the documentation you may be doing to achieve accreditation can also improve your legal defensibility. Learn how the Pennsylvania Department of Corrections addressed these challenges by joining us for a free webinar, Transgender Populations In Corrections, presented by David Radziewicz, PREA Coordinator for PA DOC.
