Community Risk Reduction
The Mercer Island Fire Department is committed to the preservation of Life and Property. Community Risk Reduction is about managing those associated risks within our community. We manage this by assessing and prioritizing risks that have been identified, developing solutions and support systems for those risks, and measuring the success of those solutions. Our objective is to continually refine solutions so that they are the most efficent and effective means to reduce or eliminate those identified risks within our community.
The Mercer Island Fire Department addresses risk reduction on many fronts. This includes public education - starting at the earliest ages feasible, continuing through our most senior citizens. It includes annual inspections of our commercial occupancies for life safety and fire hazards. It includes emergency preparedness programs delivered through our Emergency Preparedness Coordinator. And finally, it includes the continual education and implementation by fire personnel of the latest information, techniques, and programs for the prevention of injuries, and prevention of fires and reduction of property damage as a result of natural or man-made causes.
The following Community Risk Reduction pages provide information and a number of resources to educate the community in topics such as fire prevention, injury prevention, water safety, and more.
Please feel free to contact us if you are looking for something in particular, and do not find it on this website - we will attempt to find the proper resource and post it.
