Community Risk Reduction

Working together

MySafe:Riverside utilizes a risk and mitigation philosophy called “Community Risk Reduction” – or CRR for short. Our parent Non-Profit organization, The Safe Community Project, is one of the earliest adopters of this process – beginning in 2009. We have been developing and evolving CRR since we were founded, and have been twice nationally recognized as a “model performance” example of Community Risk Reduction by Vision 20/20, the originator of the CRR concept. This work starts with research, and concludes with a working model to create a safer home, street, and neighborhood.

Home Fire Safety

We’ve learned that the best fire safety ambassadors are kids. MySafe:Riverside has been teaching fire safety to elementary school students in Riverside County since 2015. Our basic program is a one hour fire safety course in elementary schools. The core objectives include understanding the risks related to fire, how to plan to escape in advance, and the steps to take to ensure everyone survives a house fire.

We utilize research and analysis to determine neighborhoods and risk, and we visit, often door-to-door, inspecting homes and installing FREE 10-year sealed smoke alarms and CO detectors. We teach families how to be safe, and show them how to practice their plan.

Other Community Threats

In today’s complex society, there are so many different issues that confront communities of all sizes. We often talk about wildfires, but there are other threats that concern everyone, including but not limited to active shooter incidents, fires, floods, earthquakes, traffic collisions, and more.

MySafe:Riverside is ready to support the community in a variety of ways, and the best place to start is with an email or phone call. Together, we can create a more resilient Riverside.
