Model performance criteria (MPC) is the gold standard that drives the focus for all risk reduction programming and helps fire departments measure their program value toward a desired outcome. Whether your effort is education programming, home safety visits, EMS or mobile integrated healthcare, inspections and enforcement, or firefighter/operational safety; MPC clearly defines the risk, intervention strategies, and program impact that is focused on your outcome or desired state. While the steps for model performance are clearly defined, Vision 20/20 has identified a gap between the knowledge and practical application of MPC and we have created this simple template to use with any risk reduction effort. As Community Risk Reduction incorporates a holistic and diverse approach to managing risk, using this template provides a critical approach in measuring effectiveness, driving performance, and fostering organizational improvement. Simply stated, model performance measurement is the value-add that the fire service provides to the communities they serve.
