“Fire 20/20 has done some amazing work in linking the issues of a growing multi-cultural society in the U.S. and effective prevention programs,” said Jim Crawford, Project Manager of Vision 20/20. “This report is important reading to increase the understanding of these issues at the national, regional, state and local levels. There is information in here for policy makers and the fire and life safety community at all levels.”
FIRE 20/20 releases the first National Multicultural Community Fire Prevention Study. The study is based on responses from 2,474 career, combination and volunteer fire departments from all 50 states and the District of Columbia, and 29 State Fire Marshal offices.
FIRE 20/20’s Multicultural Health & Safety Research Report (MHSRP) looks at how rapidly changing demographics are impacting Fire/EMS and civilian safety.
MHSRP was funded by a Department of Homeland Security Fire Prevention and Safety Grant with additional support from IAFC and LION.
