dc.description.abstractThis paper provides a framework for understanding the role community capacity plays in meeting fire protection goals and reducing fire risk within a community, neighborhood, or at an individual level. We examine the different indicators of poverty that are used by various agencies and organizations. We then provide recommendations on identifying gaps in fire protection services among low capacity communities and developing strategies to help meet the needs identified by low capacity communities. This paper provides a summary of poverty indicators used by various agencies and organizations as well as definitions for low capacity communities and rural/urban classifications. We conclude with recommendations for indicators that will identify low capacity communities that could be used by agencies and organizations making decisions about how grants are allocated and how communities at risk are prioritized.en
