  • Advocacy – How do we Advocate for Greater Support of CRR in the Fire Service? Advocating for community risk reduction is difficult when fire chiefs have to deal with competing priorities, both within a fire department and within their municipality. Vision 20/20 is working to develop new and innovative tools and initiatives to help fire departments advocate for community risk reduction and prepare their staff for moving boldly into a future where community risk reduction becomes a priority at all levels of an organization and within your community. Vision 20/20 will provide insight into these tools and initiatives that will work to further develop support for CRR at the national, state, and local levels
  • Outreach – Powering Change Through Education and Technology Help Vision 20/20 harness the power of CRR to drive change through widespread adoption of innovative technologies and safer behaviors.  This session highlights a new collaboration between Strategies 2 (Education/Outreach) and 4 (Technology) to tackle the #1 cause of home fires and related injuries:  cooking.  We will also survey attendees for your ideas on new CRR topics for Vision 20/20 and our partners to advance.
  • Model Performance and Evaluation – Driving Organizational Excellence Through Model Performance 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/ 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.  Join Vision 20/20’s subject matter experts as they unveil our new Model Performance Template & Guidance and discuss data strategies to move from knowledge to practical application with a focus on organizational performance.
