Community Risk Reduction

August 26, 2020

Community Risk Reduction (CRR) initiatives must be a priority of the 21st century fire service. CRR is a medley of fire inspections, company level inspections (pre-planning), building code compliance/enforcement and public education. There is a lot of opportunity via social media to have a broad and effective outreach program across multiple social media platforms, in order to reach your municipality.  It’s essential to give priority to gathering, analyzing and acting on emergency response and inspection data. Join us as our panelists discuss the importance of these priorities, methods, and practices.
