Building Organizational Support for Community Risk Reduction

Overview

This 2-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 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 becomes more of a community player in times of decreased budgets.

The course includes three units of instruction:

Unit One: Components of Community Risk Reduction

Unit Two: Community Risk Reduction as a Service Priority

Unit Three: Building Organizational Support for Community Risk Reduction

At the end of the course, learners will be evaluated through a 25 question multiple choice examination. A final grade will be provided to each student. The minimum score needed to pass is 70.

There is a pre-course assignment to complete before class that should take about 1 hour to complete.
