This 2-day course is designed to help fire and emergency services learn what community risk reduction is and how to build organizational support for it. This course will address the challenges fire departments face in shifting their priorities from response to prevention. In many departments community risk reduction is still considered a low priority. This course will show you how community risk reduction can help you and your department becomes more of a community player in times of decreased budgets.
