Who are we? Virtual CRR was established by a group of security and safety professionals. Many government organizations and private sector companies asked us to help them understand their risk of criminal activity, natural disasters, and terrorism. Consequently, we created Virtual CRR to bring all of that information to those who need it most, families.
What do we do? We feel everyone should have the right to feel safe and secure. Safety, security, and preparedness information, online tools, and training are brought to you through blogs, articles, and training. This is why we developed a unique program called Virtual Community Risk Reduction. We encourage organizations to help families become self-sufficient in disasters, emergencies, and increase their everyday safety. We create programs to aid these organizations.
