Boulder Fire-Rescue Background Reports


Boulder Fire-Rescue (BFR) Community Risk Assessment/Standard of Cover (CRA/SOC) Document.

The CRA/SOC serves as the primary deployment planning and resource allocation tool for BFR. The purpose of the document is to balance the assessed risks faced by the community and mitigate those through Community Risk Reduction approaches that include planning, response, education, and prevention. Contained within the CRA/SOC is information pertaining to station and apparatus locations, response trends, the specific risks faced by the residents of the City of Boulder, and outlines BFR’s level of service for response-based programs. The CRS/SOC describes the roles and responsibilities of each program area, and highlights deployment strategies and operational elements required to maintain the stated level of service. In addition, the document contains data elements and recommendations to enhance the Department’s performance. The primary goals of the Department are to improve service delivery and increase safety for the residents of The City of Boulder.
