Welcome to Community Fire Protection News...
Welcome to Community Fire Protection News, our online newsletter for the fire service, insurers, building officials, water professionals, and emergency responders. We provide concise and topical community mitigation and insurance news and more.
CFP News is a joint publication of Verisk Insurance Solutions and its ISO Community Hazard Mitigation business. In this issue, we focus on resilience, a vital topic for communities and municipalities looking to mitigate the effects of disasters, both natural and man-made. We start with an interview with Leslie Chapman-Henderson, the CEO of the Federal Alliance for Safe Homes (FLASH®), in which we discuss the national movement toward resilience. In another article, we analyze the trends in building code adoption and enforcement, including improvements in the nation’s building codes as reflected in a ten-year review of our BCEGS® program. Guest reporter Jim Crawford talks about Vision 20/20, the plan for the future of the fire service. We highlight a fire station in Fort Lauderdale that was named the nation’s busiest and the San Antonio building department that achieved a BCEGS® classification of 1.
This issue includes many industry updates and insights. We hope you’ll find our latest information useful in your own efforts to keep people and property safe against fire and other catastrophes.
