CRR Radio: Using GIS to Map Opioid Usage

In this episode of CRR Radio we talk with Assistant Chief Rich Lewellyn with the Everett (Washington) Fire Department about his award-winning Executive Fire Officer research paper, “An Epidemic in the Shadows: Using GIS to Map Opioid Use in the Spokane Valley,” that focused on using GIS to identify opioid usage and create a data-visualization tool that could help communities in allocating resources to fight this epidemic. This paper was selected for the 2018 Outstanding Applied Research Award by the National Fire Academy.
