TVF&R Kicks Off Community Risk Reduction Week Campaign

CRR Week Logo

Monday, January 17, will mark the start of Community Risk Reduction (CRR) Week, a grassroots effort lead by members of the nation’s fire service to encourage fire prevention and life safety education with the goal to reduce the occurrence and impact of emergency events. The best way to keep the public and our first responders safe from emergency events is to prevent them from happening in the first place.

In honor of CRR Week, TVF&R will share information daily on our social media platforms focusing on the five “E’s” of CRR:

Education: What altering knowledge, attitudes, and awareness related to risks can do to impact behaviors.

Engineering: What technology solutions can do to help reduce risks of emergency events.

Enforcement: What passing, strengthening, or enforcing safety regulations can do to impact risks of emergency events.

Emergency Response: What can be done to provide the safest and most efficient emergency response.

Economic Incentive: What economic incentives or penalties could be used to encourage safer behaviors.

Please join us during CRR Week by focusing on ways you can help prevent emergencies before they happen. Let’s get ahead of the 911 call, and keep our communities safe.
