Community Risk Reduction
The Community Risk Reduction (CRR) Division's goal is to build, enhance, and maintain resilient communities across San Diego County. Multiple programs make up the CRR Division: Pre-Fire/Resource Management, the Defensible Space Program, Law Enforcement, Community Engagement and Grants programs, and the County Fire Marshal program.
The CRR Division supports the communities we serve by our involvement with the Fire Safe Council of San Diego County, the Sunrise Powerlink Fire Mitigation Grants Program, various community outreach opportunities, and by promoting local events aimed at creating safe and livable communities.
