Community Risk Reduction is a data-driven process to help communities identify their risks and develop a plan to reduce those risks that are viewed as high priority. South County Fire is one of 25 fire departments selected last year by the National Fire Protection Association to participate in a grant-funded pilot project on assessing community risks.

As part of this assessment, the South County Fire outreach team has been reviewing 911 call data. This week, the team has been meeting with station crews to get their input and ideas for outreach efforts related to risks in their response areas.

South County Fire is the largest provider of fire and emergency medical services in Snohomish County, serving more than 250,000 residents in unincorporated communities and the cities of Brier, Edmonds, Lynnwood and Mountlake Terrace
