Course description

This new six-day course is intended to inspire managing officers to lead and conduct risk-reduction activities within the service area of their community. The course is both for the managing officers who are currently engaged in risk-reduction activities and the managing officers who desire to lay the foundation to start community risk reduction.

This course is about how managing officers can plan, implement and evaluate risk-reduction activities to benefit the citizens they serve and those in the fire and emergency services who provide the services. The course features the role of the officer as an inspirational leader for the risk-reduction cause. The course also provides an opportunity for students to apply risk-reduction activities in communities with a diverse population.

Students learn that a broader approach to fire protection involves multiple interventions, and when all are applied to a specific community risk issue, a difference is likely to occur, reducing risk for citizens. Students also learn that by reducing the community’s risk, the risk of death and injuries to firefighting forces is also reduced.
