The paper "Overpopulated High-Rise Temporary Housing Fires" is an outstanding example of management coursework. Community safety covers more than crime and illegal activities but also linked to persistent social conditions caused by anti-social behaviour, on top of low-level disorder and rudeness, which cause people to panic for their own safety. Behaviour such as drug misuse and drug dealing, racial harassment and hate crime, and incidents including tackling social exclusion, consumer protection, household safety, road safety, fire prevention, as well as mental health and public health are all community safety issues (Skykes et.
al. 2002, p. 206). Generally, the most efficient approach to the reduction of crime and other damaging incidents is one that involves a variety of agencies, engages the local community and combines several preventive strategies. In the UK, such a programme is increasingly being coordinated and implemented under the community safety agenda. The successful maintenance of community safety depends principally on the enthusiasm of the public to support the authorities by collaborating and imparting information (Tilley 2005, p. 550). Without sufficient participation of the required population, execution of the plan may fail because of a lack of assistance and dedication.
It is imperative to bear in mind those fire protection and other public safety services that may be offered by a fire/rescue department that will meet a particular local needs (Cote 2003, p. 128). Normally, fire department services take account of fire prevention programs such as code administration and enforcement through plans review, inspection services, and public education. Progressive departments conduct various other public services, such as health screening programs more often. This approach to mixed community safety service takes advantage of departmental resources such as neighbourhood fire stations and on-duty personnel, experience in public service and education, and the typically high regard in which citizens hold fire departments.
One essential feature of a wide-ranging public fire protection plan is the perception that it is much better for a community to prevent fires altogether, or to diminish them automatically through fire safety education and integrated fire protection features than to rely exclusively on the fire suppression capabilities of the community’ s fire department.
