Caregiver

Purpose

It is the purpose of this course to provide the adults working with occupants in “group day-care homes”, “day-care centers”, administrators, directors, operators, all staff of Group I-1 and Group R-4 assisted living communities, assisted living facilities, community living arrangements, memory care units, personal care homes, and residential board and care homes with basic information about fire safety so they may provide the occupants of their facility with at least a minimum level of protection from fire, and the potential risks associated with fire.

To realistically reduce the number of fires, injuries, deaths, and property losses associated with fire, a measurable change in the attitudes and behaviors related to fire risks and safety measures must occur.

Course Description

This course is intended for persons responsible for the care, welfare, and safety of occupants in a caregiver facility. The course is required to be attended by care givers in “group day care homes”, “day care centers”, and for administrators, directors, operators, and all staff of Group I-1 and Group R-4 assisted living communities, assisted living facilities, community living arrangements, memory care units, personal care homes, and residential board and care homes.

This limited application is based on the provisions of the Official Code of Georgia Annotated (O.C.G.A.), Chapter 25, Title 2 that designates the building types and or uses that fall under the jurisdiction of the Georgia Safety Fire Commissioner’s State Fire Marshal’s Office. The designations are located in O.C.G.A. 25-2-13(b)(1)(I).
