Vision 20/20 is a project of the Institution of Fire Engineers - USA Branch

S7 will be my third and I couldn’t be more excited about coming together with like minded passionate CRR professionals from around the country. I left S6 energized and inspired to take what I learned through the presentations and seminars back to my community and look forward to the same again at S7.  
 
The symposium is an opportunity to to share ideas and listen to colleagues experiences so that I become a better CRR advocate.

Knox – Should Smoke and CO Alarms Be Better Communicators?

We know that most of our citizens do not understand the sounds coming from their smoke/CO alarms, and in many cases do not know what to do in case of an emergency. When it comes to the future of alarms, the industry has focused on sensor technologies, but maybe the future should be for the alarms to be better communicators. We will discuss why carbon monoxide incidents are expected to increase, how COVID plays a role in low-level CO exposure, and new technology that informs and educates the residents about what the alarm is telling them and the proper action to take. We will also review how this technology provides an answer for the tough-to-educate Hispanic communities. If time allows, we will discuss how first responders can quickly and safely enter the home of a fall victim without property damage.  

Who would be interested?

Public educators, those who coordinate and execute home safety visits, those who deal with the Hispanic and senior communities, general community risk reduction officials who focus on residential safety.

 

Sound Off – Briefing for State and Local Teams

This Session is exclusively for active members of State and Local Team members implementing Sound Off with the Home Fire Safety Patrol.  Agenda includes: 1) review of most recent Sound Off evaluation data; 2) briefing on FY20 grant deliverables including a new lesson video on home fire drills; and 3) overview of the development and field-testing of Sound Off Online, a new virtual platform that will connect State and Local Sound Off Teams with teachers in their states who opt in to access free Sound Off teaching materials.  It also allows families to report that they conducted a home fire drill, allowing fire service leaders to benchmark and track progress in motivating this crucially important behavior change.
