FINAL REMINDER: Register to attend “Community Risk Reduction: Insights into Action,” a one-day online program highlighting tools, solutions and strategies for mitigating community risks

Next Tuesday, July 20, NFPA is hosting “Community Risk Reduction: Insights into Action,” a one-day online program that addresses issues fire departments and other public safety officials often face in mitigating safety risks, along with solutions, tools, and strategies to address those challenges. The program is part of the association’s virtual 125th Anniversary Conference Series, which replaces the traditional in-person 2021 NFPA Conference & Expo and runs from May 2021 through March 2022.

Featuring in-depth educational sessions, networking events, and live chats with CRR experts, “Community Risk Reduction: Insights into Action” will reinforce the critical importance of conducting a community risk assessment (CRA) as the first step in creating a community risk reduction (CRR) plan, the invaluable contributions partners and stakeholders bring to the CRR table, and the value of leveraging NFPA 1300, Standard on Community Risk Assessment and Community Risk Reduction Plan Development as a unifying framework, among other issues.

Whether you are new to CRR, getting knee-deep into the CRR waters, or are a savvy influencer in the CRR space, attendees will gain vital insights that advance their local prevention initiatives in actionable ways. Many of the day’s presenters are safety advocates and officials who are actively working to develop and implement CRR plans in their communities. Almost all of them have faced challenges, but their efforts to tackle and overcome those obstacles reinforce the positive impact that can be made with the right tools, resources, and know-how. 

Attendees can tune in live to earn up to five credit hours (0.5 CEU) and earn an additional five credit hours on-demand for a total of 10 credit hours (1.0 CEU). Alternatively, the content can all be viewed on-demand for a total of 10 credit hours (1.0 CEU). All programs will be available on-demand for up to a year starting on July 20.
