Community Risk Reduction

The Fire Prevention Division within Hillsboro Fire and Rescue was established to provide public education, community development plan review, compliance inspections, and fire investigations. For more information reference the Hillsboro Municipal Code 11.28.020.

The Fire Prevention Division is following through with their mission to respond to the needs of the community by employing the principles of Community Risk Reduction. Community Risk Reduction is a process to identify and prioritize local risks, followed by integrated and strategic investment of resources (emergency response and prevention) to reduce their occurrence and impact. A priority of our strategic plan is to assess community risk within the City of Hillsboro and develop a plan to reduce the occurrence and impact of the identified risks. We continue to provide services as we develop this plan based on traditional fire prevention models.
