NFPA 1730, Standard on Organization and Deployment of Fire Prevention Inspection and Code Enforcement, Plan Review, Investigation, and Public Education Operations to the Public is open for public comment. Deadline for submitting comments is May 16, 2014.
The NFPA Standards Council considered the request of Jim Crawford of Vision 20/20 Project that NFPA establish a standard that helps departments follow the process steps for a Community Risk Reduction plan. The Community Risk Reduction (CRR) plan is the identification and prioritization of risks followed by the coordinated application of resources to minimize the probability or occurrence and/or the impact of unfortunate events. After review of all the material before it, the Council voted to publish a notice to solicit comments on the need for the project, information on resources on the subject matter, those interested in participating if established, and other organizations actively involved with the subject. Deadline for submitting comments is June 23, 2014.
