New Orleans Fire Department had been installing smoke alarms in people's homes for years, but they were looking for a more effective way to do it. By working in partnership with the city's Office of Performance and Accountability, they were able to develop a more focused approach using publicly available data. Listen to Chief McConnell and Director Wise explain how they went from installing 800 smoke alarms to 18,000 using data. Watch the video produced by the U.S. Census Bureau on this program https://youtu.be/4VJ-pfm3nrE New Orleans partnered with enigma.io to help build this model.
