    This two-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 that 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 become more of a community player in times of decreased budgets.

    This course includes three units of instruction:
    Unit 1:  Components of Community Risk Reduction
    Unit 2:  Community Risk Reduction as a Service Priority
    Unit 3: Building Organizational Support for Community Risk Reduction

    No cost for this class
