State Fire Marshal Releases Community Risk Reduction Plan to Help Prevent Residential Fire Fatalities
November 1, 2017 - Reducing Michigan’s high number of residential fire fatalities is the primary goal of a statewide Community Risk Reduction (CRR) plan announced today by State Fire Marshal Kevin Sehlmeyer. Michigan has ranked in the top tier of states nationally for its high number of residential fire fatalities for the last several years.
“With increased fire training and focused community outreach programs, the Michigan Fire Service has a responsibility to instill a cultural change across the state about fire and life safety in our homes, our schools, and our communities,” said Sehlmeyer. “The focus is to build a sustainable plan for all communities to be implemented with the assistance of local fire departments and other disciplines for years to come, as we all have a vested interest in community risk reduction. Our lives literally depend on it.”
