Vision 20/20 Launches Video to Help Departments Promote Fire Prevention

“Community Risk Reduction” is available for free download and is the third in a series of videos

Alexandria, VA – A new impact video for fire departments to use in promoting fire safety in their communities is available from Vision 20/20’s web site www.strategicfire.org.

“Community Risk Reduction” details successful programs over the past three years in communities across the nation, including Dallas, Philadelphia, Tualatin Valley, Tucson and others. Each has their own variation of Community Risk Reduction, but they all include home fire safety visits, with some done by fire fighters while others are in partnership with community service organizations. They all have demonstrated solid short term results and other communities are providing long term data as evidence that these concepts work. A number of these success stories are outlined in this short video along with other partners nationwide with their own testimonials of solid results.

The video “Community Risk Reduction” is an integral part of a series designed by Vision 20/20 to promote effective fire protection and prevention strategies, including the recently-launched Vision 20/20 Fire Prevention Advocacy Toolkit. This series includes “Advocating for Fire Prevention” and “Prevention Saves,” and they are all available at www.strategicfire.org. Each provides fire safety professionals with the tools they need to demonstrate the value of a fire prevention program to city officials, community leaders and other key decision makers.

“Community Risk Reduction is a very successful strategy that has had positive results in many fire departments across the nation,” said Bill Kehoe, co-leader of Strategy 3 for Vision 20/20. “It can help you manage risks in your community by combining emergency response and prevention strategies at the station level. You can learn how fire chiefs are putting the concept to work in their departments in this new video that you can download from our web site.”

Vision 20/20 is a collaborative project of the Institution of Fire Engineers – USA Branch that is funded by the Department of Homeland Security Fire Prevention and Safety grant program.
