From our readings throughout the course, we see that the emphasis on Community Risk Reduction has changed drastically over the years. The recent renewed emphasis on CRR has been part of an effort to make sure the US Fire Service is using our resources in the most efficient and effective manner possible. Going forward, there will inevitably be changes to the responsibilities of fire service personnel that will include an increased focus on CRR activities.
For this final forum, reflect on what you have learned over the past eight weeks. How do you feel your new knowledge of CRR has impacted your career? What are some changes you can see implementing at your fire department? Also address how you think CRR will continue to change and adapt in order to meet future challenges of the US Fire Service.
