Community Risk Assessment and the CFAI 10th Edition
The CPSE's 10th edition of the Quailty Improvement for the Fire And Emergency Services document, which is used by fire departments across the globe in their accreditation process, has a strong emphasis on Community Risk Assessment. In this episode of CRR Radio we speak with Division Chief Matt Knott who was closely involved in writing this part of the document.
CRR Radio - Community Cardiac Health and CRR
In this episode we talk with cardiologist Dr. Seth Martin from Johns Hopkins School of Medicine about the role of preventive cardiac health as a CRR issue. The leading cause of deaths across the nation, by far, is cardiovascular disease (CVD), killing over 600,000 people each year-200 for every fire death. When conducting a Community Risk Assessment for any community, CVD will rank right up there at the top. We talk about some strategies that you can do to help change this in your community.

Tackling Heart Disease through CRR in Texas
In this podcast we talk with Battalion Chief of Community Medicine Joe Casciotti from the Harris County Emergency Services District #48 in Texas about their Mobile Integrated Health/Community Paramedicine program that addresses the issues around Cardiovascular Disease (CVD). CVD is the leading cause of death across the nation, and Harris County, in partnership with the hospital system, has developed a system for following up with heart attack victims to reduce re-admissions through home safety visits - with remarkable results. Readmission rates dropped from 12% to 4%, a significant decrease.
CVD is the leading cause of death in America, killing 600,000 people per year. To put this in context, 200 times more people die from CVD than from fires, which kill 3,000 people every year. CVD is a CRR issue...not every community has had a fatal fire, but every community has lost members to CVD. Listen to what Joe has to say and learn what you can do in your community!
