NFPA Standards Council acts to establish a standard for Community Risk Reduction plans

The National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) Standards Council has approved a request to establish a standard for Community Risk Assessments and Reduction plans. The standard will provide a process for jurisdictions to follow in developing and implementing a Community Risk Reduction plan, which helps identify a community risk profile and allocate resources to minimize risks. The standard, which was requested by the Vision 20/20 project, is expected to be done in the next two years.
