Fallanden's fire brigade asked WPI to determine public opinion of the fire brigade, risks facing the Gemeinde, and to examine the decline in Brigade volunteers. We used statistics, interviews, and questionnaire results to determine the actual and perceived risks facing Fallanden. The research demonstrates the perceived and actual risks do not coincide. In order to determine the actual risks, it's necessary to combine all aspects of risk present in that community and vulnerability, and that recruiting is a worldwide problem.
