International symposium on Community Risk Management

The National Fire Chiefs Council (NFCC) and Vision 20/20 are this week joining forces to host an international symposium on Community Risk Management. 

The three-day event (18-20 Sept 2019) will see nearly 60 delegates from ten countries with developed Community Risk Programmes (CRPs) come together in Birmingham, UK to share international good practice. 

Speakers representing NFCC and Vision 20/20, together with sector leaders and academics, will participate in a programme of presentations and discussions covering areas including:    

  • risk identification, data collection and analysis
  • fire response performance and survivability
  • the links between vulnerability, risk and prevention activities. 

The symposium is being held at The Hub at West Midlands Fire Service and will use the social media hashtag #IntSymp19.
