The Community Risk Reduction Leadership conference is coming back in-person in 2022 and is the only conference geared specifically to the education and training needs of Chief Officers and other fire service managers. Attendees will explore different ways to create, execute, and evaluate measurably successful CRR platforms and programs.
Your submission should fit into 1 of our 4 unique tracks:
Research & Analysis
This track should provide agencies on how to conduct a Community Risk Assessment and lay the foundation for an agency to create a community risk reduction plan. These sessions should also include ideas and thoughts on outcome performance measurements. This could also potentially include how fire departments use a data management system with geographic information system (GIS) capabilities to review and analyze incident information and help to determine needs and identify gaps.
New Technologies, Resources, and Tools in CRR
This track should provide students with an opportunity to see the latest technologies and techniques being used in Community Risk Reduction as well as include resources and tools being used throughout CRR. This should also provide innovative ideas and technologies being used for CRR.
These sessions should demonstrate how community risk reduction can help departments become more of a community player in times of decreased budgets. Community Risk Reduction (CRR) is an integrated approach to risk management that marries emergency operations and fire prevention strategies into a more cohesive approach to reducing risks in any community. It includes the fire department partnering with the community, nonprofit organizations, and any private sector agencies with a nexus to an identified community risk.
This basic session is designed to help fire and emergency services learn what community risk reduction is and how to build organizational support for it. A course in this session should address the challenges that fire departments face in shifting their priorities. In many departments, community risk reduction is still considered a low priority.
Each submission will be considered for a 75-minute session block – 60 minutes of which should be dedicated to content, with at least 15-minutes of audience interaction.
Submissions are due by Thursday, October 28 at 11:59 PM Eastern
