A Step by Step Approach

We provide a step by step approach to understanding Community Risk Reduction Planning and what it means for you department-referencing NFPA 1300, Vision 20/20 guidance and international practice.

Build a Meaningful CRA

We focus on showing you how to build a meaningful Community Risk Assessment which aligns with your existing capabilities and then shows you how to take the next steps.

Explore Data Gathering

The workshop provides an exploration of data gathering and analytics techniques to help you identify, map and quantify community risk.

Support Tailored to Meet Needs

We do not sell a one size fits all product or service but know that to truly help clients build sustainable improvement working them to tailor the support which best meets their needs and reflects their individual context is key.

Connect with Other Practitioners

We support your learning by connecting you with other practitioners who are on the same journey. We consider that part of our commitment to all commissions.

Practical Exercises and Case Studies

Our workshop program is designed to build your understanding and creativity with practical exercises and case studies. This helps clients to develop a complete view of the process of CRR and the part that the CRA plays.

CRR Process

We aim to help you turn the CRR process into the backbone of your whole strategic planning process.

Strategies to Overcome Resistance

The workshop will also look at the potential organizational, cultural and political pitfalls which you might encounter and offer strategies to overcome resistance.
