State Fire Agency To Hold Events at Two Colorado Universities in Honor of Community Risk Reduction Week 2023
March 27th, 2023 - The Colorado Division of Fire Prevention and Control (DFPC) and its partners at Adams State University and Colorado Mesa University are taking part in Community Risk Reduction (CRR) Week. Community Risk Reduction is a process to identify and prioritize local risks, followed by the integrated and strategic investment of resources to reduce their occurrence and impact. CRR Week aims to raise awareness of local risks across Colorado and teach communities how they can reduce those risks.
On Tuesday, March 28 and Thursday, March 30, 2023, DFPC is hosting multi-agency events that focus on the issues fire departments, other public safety officials, and community leaders often face in mitigating safety risks, along with solutions, tools, and strategies to address them.
