Objective
Community Risk Reduction (CRR) is not a new concept for the fire service. For years fire departments have been involved in some form of community risk reduction through building inspections and public education since they were first organized in the United States. This course delivers training in a focused manner and truly integrates the concept into the mission of the fire department as well as throughout the community. The process of CRR often unfolds in a predictable sequence of: • Development of a comprehensive assessment to identifying community-specific risks at the operational level (preferably by fire station response area). • Prioritizing the risks to be addressed and application of resources to minimize the probability of those events from happening, or reduce the impact of those events. • Coordinating elements of emergency response with preventive tactics that mitigate risks. • Monitor and evaluate CRR programs and modify them as necessary to develop a proactive approach with a community. Applying CRR affords U.S. fire service agencies the opportunity, through a systematic approach, to proactively manage the risks within their communities.
