More about CRR Week

In 2008, Vision 20/20 held its first meeting, bringing together hundreds of experts from across the nation to discuss the gaps in fire prevention. This meeting resulted in identifying five specific strategies that needed to be addressed to help fill the gaps in fire prevention. CRR Week is focused on addressing strategy one: advocacy. Advocating for fire prevention is difficult when fire chiefs have to deal with competing priorities, both within a fire department and within their municipality. This strategy focuses on helping to develop tools and information that can be used when advocating for more resources to devote to fire prevention.
