The iFirePrevention website is designed to be your choice for Community Risk Reduction Resources. Community Risk Reduction (CRR) is defined as the identification and prioritization of risks followed by the integrated application of resources of improve public safety and reduce increasing call volumes, according to Vision 20/20.
While CRR focuses on more issues than we will cover, the purpose of this website is to provide the resources for individuals, educators, and emergency services to help with CRR programs with the goal to reduce 9-1-1 calls. Additionally, we have separated information into three different “audiences” to help each part of our community access the information that will best help them. While currently this website is only focusing on 3 of the E's (education, engineering, and enforcement), CRR focuses on a total of 5 E’s – enforcement, engineering, emergency response, economic incentive, and education. For more information about all 5 of the E’s, the NFPA has a number of resources on their website.
The goal of this website is to provide you with the resources and supporting success stories that are occurring across the country-- proving that PREVENTING a 9-1-1 call is not a“Bad” concept.
The Cumberland Valley Volunteer Firemen's Association was created to further progress emergency protocols and procedures for firefighters. Since its evolution, the CVVFA has worked to promote responder safety through advanced training and other education. The group has also promoted appropriate and effective behavior among emergency responders as leaders in their local communities.
Our work is part of the mission of the Cumberland Valley Volunteer Fireman’s Association where fire prevention has been an important part of this group’s history.
