Colorado Declares Community Risk Reduction (CRR) Week January 20-26

 Lakewood, CO: In the Fire Service, we often speak of the 5 E’s of Community Risk Reduction. The 5 E’s are Education, Engineering, Enforcement, Economic Incentives, and Emergency Response.

These 5 E’s form the foundation by which we plan, establish, and measure our CRR activities and programs. Each of them is valuable and essential to a successful program.

The Colorado Division of Fire Prevention and Control (DFPC) declares January 20-26th, 2020 as Community Risk Reduction (CRR) Week. Fire departments are encouraged to promote fire and life safety interventions.

This week, DFPC will publish daily videos teaching the public about the 5 E’s that make up Community Risk Reduction. Visit our CRR 2020 page by clicking here! 

CRR is a process to identify and prioritize local risks, followed by the integrated and strategic investment of resources to reduce their occurrence and impact. In other words, it is a process to help communities find out what their risks are and develop a plan to reduce the risks viewed as high priority.

Thank you Governor Polis and our partners for your continued support!
