Message from the Fire Marshal

Community Risk Reduction (CRR) is a new concept that is firmly rooted in traditional fire prevention activities.  The main difference is the scope of prevention activities has expanded from fire to any and everything that ails our community.  In addition, we try to use data analysis along with anecdotal information to deploy resources to solve those problems.  We build partnerships within the community to avoid duplication of effort while getting the right tool for the job.  The result is a division that is committed to being efficient and effective in preventing harm to our citizens and community.

Senior Fall and Fire Prevention Initiative

The Natrona County Senior Fall and Fire Prevention Coalition is dedicated to preventing falls and fires in the senior population.  Public education efforts are conducted at various locations throughout the county.

The initiative is based on The National Fire Protection Association’s (NFPA) Remembering WhenTM: A Fire and Fall Prevention Program for Older Adults. The program was developed by NFPA and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) to help older adults live safely at home for as long as possible.
