CRR Tools from the U.S. Census Bureau

One of the first steps in CRR is having a good handle on the makeup of your community – the people, the homes, the businesses and the industry. Data on all of this can be gathered from a variety of sources, both locally and nationally. In this conversation on CRR Radio we talk with Chip Walker from the U.S. Census Bureau on the tools that are available online for any jurisdiction to use in getting a better understanding of their community. We also talk about how the U.S. Census Bureau has resources that can be of immeasurable help when a disaster strikes.

Chip Walker…“We have data that really goes across the spectrum. A lot of people know the Census Bureau for its demographic data. We also have a tremendous amount of economic data on businesses and all of these can be valuable at the local level. So demographic data, of course, we have lots of population data. And depending on the particular survey that you’re looking at, it will depend on the level of geography. It can go down to census tract, it can go down to census block. Or it can even go down to blocks depending on what the data variable is that you’re looking at. So we have things on population, on age, on ethnicities. We have things on education levels, employment, and then we have lots of information on homes.”

Here are links to some of the features that Chip was talking about in our conversation.

  • www.census.gov – the main website for the U.S. Census Bureau
  • Emergency Preparedness The U.S. Census Bureau produces timely local data that are critical to emergency planning, preparedness and recovery efforts.
  • Data.census.gov (https://data.census.gov/cedsci/) is  the new platform to access data and digital content from the U.S. Census Bureau that replaces the American Fact Finder. The vision for data dissemination through data.census.gov is to improve the customer experience by making data available from one centralized place so that data users spend less time searching for data content and more time using it.
  • QuickFacts – a snapshot look at a geographic region
  • Census Business Builder The Census Business Builder (CBB) is a suite of services that provide selected demographic and economic data from the Census Bureau tailored to specific types of users in a simple to access and use format.

CRR Week – What Is It All About?

CRR Week is a grass-roots movement that is starting to spread across the nation that will take place the week of January 20th, starting on Martin Luther King Day. Listen to Chiefs Chris Walker (Wilmington Fire, NC), Deanna Harrington (Arvada Fire Protection District, CO) and Josh Fulbright (SC State Fire Marshal’s Office) fill us in on what it is all about!

Chief Harrington talks about how it will be structured…”So the week has been set up so that each day of the week, there will be a different focus on one of the 5 E’s, meaning the five different strategies that can be implemented to intervene once a risk has been identified and prioritized. And so it will start with Monday, which will be focused on Education, and Tuesday will be Engineering, Wednesday will be focusing on Enforcement, Thursday on Economic Incentive, Friday on Emergency Response to complete the 5 E’s, and then Saturday and Sunday have been set up to promote any of the 5 E’s in really trying to get some resources out to volunteer departments who might be able to put forth a little bit more effort on the weekend.”

International Best Practices in CRR Symposium

In this episode of CRR Radio we talk with West Midlands Chief Fire Officer Phil Loach in the UK about the upcoming symposium on international best practices in CRR that the UK National Fire Chiefs Council is doing in partnership with The Vision 20/20 Project. You can find more information about this ground-breaking symposium at the NFCC website, but here is what Phil Loach had to say about what is going to be happening at the symposium…

“Just to give you a real tangible feel to the kind of things we’ll be talking around is that will include emergency operations, we’ll include health and vulnerability, including fire-based EMS, We’ll be looking at risk identification and analysis, so data collection, and analysis for risk assessment and planning, and we’ll also be including prevention-based activities and protection, which is a really relevant issue in the UK at the moment following the tragic Grenfell Tower incident.”

Side Effects of CRR (Part 2)

In the second part of this two-part series we finish our conversation with Captain Joe Powers, FO, from the Henrico County Division of Fire. This episode looks at the external side effects of CRR, focusing on how CRR can have a positive impact on the fire department’s relationship with your community’s governance. City and town administrators may speak a different language than the fire department, focusing on outcomes (lives and property saved, for example) versus outputs (response time, number of calls), and CRR can be an instrumental part of helping you bridge this gap.

According to Captain Powers, “When we start thinking in the form of outcomes rather than outputs, we’re able to start looking at, let’s say commercial fires in a completely different way. Rather than thinking about the number of commercial fires that we ran last year over a given period of time, we can start looking at the tax revenue that we sustained through having a fire department that’s able to respond quickly and mitigate incidents. We can also look at the job savings that occur. Outcomes are really the things that people care about. Outputs make pretty graphs a lot of times, but when it comes down to what elected officials and our community leaders are looking for, they’re really looking for outcomes.”

Using data to predict fires and technology to detect them

In this episode we focus on using data to help predict where home fires may occur and technology to help detect them in vacant properties. This episode also ties into an earlier one Data and Smoke Alarms in New Orleans that you might be interested in.

You can download the transcript to this podcast.

Using data to predict fires

We start by talking with Jon Jay, a doctoral student at the Harvard School of Public Health, and author of the article “Can Algorithms Predict House Fires.” In this article, and on this podcast, Jay talks about how it is possible to use data to predict where house fires are more likely to occur in a city so that the fire department can better focus its prevention and home safety visits, and the results are astounding.

By randomly visiting neighborhoods, it was determined that a fire department would probably visit 20% of the homes likely to have a fire. However, by using a data-driven approach, this percentage jumped to 71% resulting in a much more effective and efficient use of staffing.

The data that was used is from publicly available sources, and by bringing together a variety of data sources it is possible to refine the model significantly and really hone in on the geographic areas of the city as well as the different property types.

Using technology to detect fires

We then have a conversation with Nathan Armentrout from Eidolon who invented CASPER – Continuous Autonomous Solar Powered Event Reporter. This is a device that is installed in vacant homes and listens for the sound of a smoke alarm in the building then sends out an alert by cellular signal to the cloud.

This device came about as a result of a hackathon sponsored by Louisville, Kentucky, where there was a problem of fires in vacant homes. These fires were creating significant risks to the other homes around them because they were not being detected until they were well developed instead of in their early stages. The city put the problem forward to the Level 1 hackerspace, and competition was put together to find a solution. Armentrout developed CASPER which has been successfully pilot tested in Louisville and he is now rolling out in beta to other cities.
