The Fire Community Assessment Risk Evaluation System

About the Project

If fire department resources are deployed to match the risk levels inherent to hazards in the community, it has been scientifically demonstrated that the community will be far less vulnerable to negative outcomes in firefighter injury and death, civilian injury and death and property loss. FireCARES analyzes massive amounts of fire department and community data to identify whether resources are appropriately deployed to match a community's risk level.
