Community risk reduction (CRR) begins and ends at the station level, in the heart of your community. In this session, we will define what modern CRR is, and what it isn't, as well as discuss it's relevance to the emergency services and the ever increasing role it will play well into the future. Through a case study review, we will work through the identified steps of planning and implementing a CRR program, based on the assessment of identified community risks.
