In 2017, the State Fire Marshal’s Office launched a new statewide Community Risk Reduction (CRR) plan with the goal of having all recognized fire departments in the state address risk as it relates to their community. The SFMO provides fire departments with a risk assessment which lays the groundwork for the fire department to work with local stakeholders and related partners to create a localized CRR plan that addresses their unique risks.
The following resources should be utilized when creating a community risk reduction plan:
- Census data
- Vision 20/20
- Example CRR Plans
The Excellence in Community Risk Reduction (CRR) Award was established in 2017 to recognize fire departments who have created, implemented, and monitored a successful community risk reduction initiative. Each year, applicants from across Tennessee submit their community risk reduction plans to be judged by national leaders in CRR. The award is given each year at the State Fire Marshal’s Office’s annual Fire Loss Symposium.
Past winners of the Excellence in Community Risk Reduction Award:
2019 – Three Star Volunteer Fire Department
2018 – Madison County Fire Department
2017 – Madison County Fire Department
The application for the 2020 Excellence in Community Risk Reduction Award will open in Q2 2021.
