CRR Radio - New V2020 Strategy 1 Leader Chris Brunette
In this special edition of CRR Radio we talk with Section Chief Chris Brunette from the Colorado Division of Fire Prevention and Control who will be the new Vision 20/20 Strategy 1 Leader. One of the first activities that Brunette will be working on is CRR Week (www.crrweek.org). CRR Week started in 2019 as an ad-hoc, informal program, to raise the awareness about CRR among the members of the fire service. However, it has grown tremendously since its humble beginnings and, to help it grow and be sustainable, it has moved under the Vision 20/20 umbrella.

Failure's Classroom for CRR
Failure's Classroom. Sometimes (many times?) we learn as much, if not more, from what didn't work as much as what did work. In this occasional series of conversations from CRR Radio we will be talking with people about something that they tried, with the highest hopes but, well...just didn't work out as expected. Joining us for the first show is Mike Weller, Training Specialist with the National Fire Academy.

Using Data to Reduce EMS Frequent Users
CRR Radio speaks with EMS Coordinator and RN Dana Cardenas from Tempe Fire Medical Rescue about how they are using data to reduce 911 calls from frequent users. EMS calls make up a majority of TFD's runs, and there are a small group of people that are frequent users, or callers. Using predictive analytics to identify them, and developing an intervention program to help these people get the proper care they need, TFD is able to reduce their call call volume and provide better, more focused care.
