Why Fire Services Need To Take Data Seriously
The latest blog from APX Data, with Sean Tracey, FIFireE, Former Deputy Chief
Data was identified as one of the “five wicked issues” facing fire services by members of the International Association of Fire Chiefs (IAFC). The accurate and efficient collection and spread of fire service data to improve response and inform policy faces serious barriers. It’s a problem that’s not going away and at some point in time each service must address. At the end of the day, we’re all looking to protect our communities and our firefighters.
Sean Tracey is a former 20-year veteran of the Canadian Forces, serving as a Military Engineering Officer and the Canadian Forces Fire Marshal. In 2000, he was appointed the first ever Canadian Regional Director for NFPA. He also served in the Ottawa Fire Service as Deputy Chief Training, Safety & Innovation, and is a past Director of the Canadian Council of Fire Marshals and Fire Commissioners and the Ontario Fire Marshal Public Fire Safety Council.
