The 5 ‘E’s of Community Risk Reduction (CRR)

During August, USFA will focus on the five Es of community risk reduction:


Education makes the public aware of risks and how to mitigate them.


Engineering provides an opportunity to work with local organizations and government to promote new fire safety technologies in your community.


Enforcement identifies potential risks and non-compliance in your local properties and teaches your community how fire safety codes protect them.

Economic incentives

Economic incentives can be useful to encourage individuals and businesses to make choices that reduce risk.

Emergency Response

Emergency response protects your community and your firefighters by ensuring they have the equipment and training they need.

A community risk reduction (CRR) program can help your department take what you already know and lower the risks within your area of operation. CRR uses a wide variety of tools to form a strategic and integrated program focused on reducing the occurrence and impact of local risks.
