Course Description

Introduction to Community Risk Reduction (CRR) is a one-day course that is intended to provide a basic understanding of Community Risk Reduction, how to evaluate the risks and hazards that exist in a community, and create successful CRR initiatives in any community.   The students will also be introduced to evaluation concepts as well as steps to creating an organizational culture that embraces CRR.

Training Outcomes
