The Palm Beach County Fire Rescue's Community Risk Reduction Division (CRRD) plays a vital role in ensuring the safety of our residents, firefighters, and businesses. Our mission is to proactively reduce the risks associated with fires and other emergencies, both at home and in the community.

Education and Enforcement for a Safer Palm Beach County

The CRRD achieves its goals through a two-pronged approach: education and enforcement.

  • Education: We offer a variety of educational programs for all ages, from fire safety presentations in schools to CPR training for residents.
  • Enforcement: Our fire inspectors ensure that buildings comply with all fire safety codes, minimizing the risk of fires and keeping everyone safe.

Specialized Teams for Comprehensive Protection

The CRRD is comprised of four distinct branches, each dedicated to a specific aspect of risk reduction:​

  • Community Education: Develops and delivers fire safety and injury prevention programs for all ages.
  • Existing Inspections: Conducts annual fire safety inspections of commercial properties to ensure code compliance.
  • Fire Plan Review and New Construction Inspections: Reviews construction plans and inspects new buildings to guarantee adherence to fire safety codes.
  • Fire Investigations: Investigates the cause of fires to prevent future incidents.

The CRRD also supports and houses the Drowning Prevention Coalition of Palm Beach County, highlighting our commitment to comprehensive safety within the community.  Palm Beach County Fire Rescue's CRRD is here to keep you and your loved ones safe.
