FSMC 005 - Effective Communication & Report Writing

 
Course Description
This course explores clear, succinct, and accurate presentation of important information in writing reports, emails, memos, and letters. The writer will learn to convey their wants/needs and ideas to the reader in a fashion that is easily understood. This course will teach the participant how to excel in their professional report writing to stand out when writing a report to senior municipal staff, or council, especially when competing with other municipal staff for limited attention and funding.  
 
Course Rationale
In a fire administrator role, a significant amount of time is spent communicating in written form. Whether you are introducing new policies, communicating health and safety alerts or delivering reports to the senior management team, mayor and town council, all written communication needs to be clear, concise, and reader friendly. Effective Communication and Report Writing is designed to help fire service leaders with the challenge of writing effective emails, memos, business letters and reports. Each document type requires plain language, an appropriate tone, and a strong organizational pattern.  The writer may have to present facts and evidence that are relevant to a specific problem, issue or request.  This course will guide students through developing the content and structure of these common written forms of communication.
