Introduction to Strategic Community Risk Reduction (ISCRR) is a new online self-study course that empowers the learner with an understanding of what constitutes strategic community risk reduction (CRR). Students explore the history and evolution from fire prevention into all-hazards risk reduction. In addition to identifying the core components that build an effective CRR strategy, students learn how the process can help foster safe, healthy, prepared and resilient communities.

This introductory level course will be a prerequisite course for entering the National Fire Academy's CRR program. It is also an excellent stand-alone course for those new to CRR and/or other non-fire service audiences such as law enforcement, educators, allied health professionals, juvenile justice officials and wildland urban interface partners. It is especially appropriate for station-based officers, line staff and EMS providers.

This course takes approximately five hours to complete and can be taken in segments at the student's convenience.
