Model Programs For Reducing Fire and Injury

Leaders Demonstrate Life Saving Programs

Have you ever sat in a room of your peers and wonder “Why didn’t I think of that” or  “how did they have time to get it done?” That ahh ha moment came multiple teams this weekend as I participated in the Models in Fire Prevention Symposium put on by the great folks associated with Vision 20/20.

The three day program highlighted programs from across the United States that are part of a community risk reduction strategy.  Some of the presenters where some of the most talented folks in our business.  Highlights included:

  • The art and science of developing a prevention culture by Chief Zikmund
  • People with profound hearing loss, partnering in community risk reduction
  • ITM, regulating and managing qualifications of contractors and their employees
  • Reducing nuisance alarms
  • No Child left alone
  • Sound the alarm
  • Kids First, safety First a successful community based fire safety partnership

There is no doubt a common themes included public private partnerships, leverage of resources, changing perceptions, and an attitude that we must act now.  If you could not attend take a look at the model prevention programs and you can download presentations and handouts.  In addition almost every state had a representative which will hopefully bring the information back.

What are your thoughts, is Vision 20/20 making a difference?
