Project RISK is a Spokane Valley Fire Department initiative to reduce fire and medical emergencies in our community through proactive, targeted outreach and education. Project RISK focuses on:
- Smoke Alarms
We analyze of our fire and medical emergency call data to identify the most frequent causes of fire and Emergency Medical Service (EMS) calls. We then focus our educational efforts and resources to address these identified ‘community risks’.
Project RISK is led by our Community Risk Reduction Specialist, Elysia Spencer.
Community Risk Reduction (CRR) is a term used by the National Fire Prevention Association (NFPA) and is defined as “programs, actions and services used by a community, which prevent or mitigate the loss of life, property and resources associated with life safety, fire and other disasters within a community.”
