Smoke Alarm and Data in New Orleans

Director Oliver Wise, New Orleans OPA

Chief Tim McConnell, New Orleans FD

New Orleans Fire Department had been installing smoke alarms in people’s homes for years, but they were looking for a more effective way to do it. By working in partnership with the city’s Office of Performance and Accountability, and a project out of New York, the Enigma Smoke Signals Project, they were able to develop a more focused approach using publicly available data. Listen to Chief McConnell and Director Wise explain how they went from installing 800 smoke alarms to 18,000 using data.
