Community Risk Reduction

The Wyoming State Fire Marshal's Office employs the basic tenants of Community Risk Reduction (CRR). CRR is a process to identify and prioritize local risks, followed by the integrated and strategic investment of resources (emergency response and prevention) to reduce their occurrence and impact. Our agency has partnered with many fire departments across the State of Wyoming. These partnerships lead to the development of a statewide CRR team entitled "307CRR". Staff from the Wyoming Fire Marshal's Office serve as advocates for our fire department partners. Staff provides data and expertise to local departments who are conducting local risk assessments, identifying solutions, and implementing solutions to reduce their local fire problems and associated fire injuries and fire deaths.

The state 307CRR Team has implemented its first 307CRR initiative. The stated goal of this 307CRR initiative is to “Install inline O2 cannula thermal devices in 100% of all identified homes using medical oxygen in Wyoming, in an effort to eliminate all Wyoming fatalities and injuries due to smoking in the presence of home medical oxygen by January 1, 2025.”
