Community Risk Reduction Unit

Increases public awareness of fire safety by developing educational fire safety materials such as brochures, flyers, posters and booklets for distribution to schools, fire departments and the general public. The Unit develops specific fire safety programs for schools, preschools and senior citizens; publishes a newsletter for members of the fire service and other individuals and organizations interested in fire safety; coordinates the Annual Fire Safety Poster Contest and the Annual Fire Bowl for school children throughout the state; and serves as liaison to several councils and committees such as, Fire Safety Commission, Master Planning & Research, Public Education, Fire Equipment Contractors and Codes Advisory Councils, as well as the Fire Prevention and Protection’s County Presidents and Operation Seven Save a Life Smoke Detector Program. The Unit also works with the Juvenile Firesetter Committee to research and develop a statewide policy for preventing juveniles from setting fires, and for educating the public and the fire service about the problem.
