  • Description

    Updated for consistency with related standards, NFPA 1730 helps jurisdictions establish Community Risk Reduction plans and address the effectiveness of their fire prevention organizations.

    Get guidance and a clear process for developing and implementing an effective Community Risk Reduction plan in NFPA 1730, Standard on Organization and Deployment of Fire Prevention Inspection and Code Enforcement, Plan Review, Investigation, and Public Education Operations.

    This standard was developed in response to growing support throughout the United States for communities to engage in community risk reduction.

    The International Association of Fire Chiefs' (IAFC) strategic planning platform recognizes the need for the fire service to embrace an integrated approach to the process, and the concept is part of the National Fire Academy curriculum. This second edition of NFPA 1730 is updated for ease of use and better correlation with other key documents for public safety, such as NFPA 921 and NFPA 1035.

    Use NFPA 1730 to better identify a community risk profile and allocate resources effectively. Chapters address:

    • Community Risk Assessment
    • Fire prevention inspection and code enforcement activities in existing occupancies
    • Plan review
    • Investigations
    • Public education programs—presentations to the public by fire departments and other organizations based on an approved Community Risk Reduction plan

    Give fire prevention organizations and elected officials a step-by-step guide for minimizing risks and maximizing budgets.

    NFPA 1730 also helps community leaders determine appropriate staffing levels for provided services. Annexes offer additional guidance, and tools include a Community Risk Assessment Guide and sample staffing exercises. (Print, 36 pp., 2019)
