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.

CRR Radio - Using Data to Reduce EMS Frequent Users
In this episode of CRR Radio we speak with EMS Coordinator and Registered Nurse Dana Cardenas from the Tempe, Arizona, Fire Medical Rescue Department about how they are using data to reduce the number of 911 calls from frequent users. As with all departments, 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 not only reduce their call call volume but provide this subset with better, more focused care.

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!

Patients were managed on a voluntary outpatient basis to ensure medications were taken as prescribed, discharge instructions were followed, and followup with physicians and cardiac rehab were conducted as ordered by the physician. Patients approached but refusing participation had a 12% readmission rate to the hospital within 30 days of discharge while those agreeing to participate in the program had a 4% readmission rate. The participants not readmitted continued to remain out of the hospital months later.
